Partha Unnava - GenY Success ShowAbout This Episode

Click To Retweet: “Your drive can’t be from wanting to exit a business…but instead on making an impact.”

Partha Unnava is the founder of Better Walk. After breaking his ankle and spending six weeks on crutches, he founded Better Walk to create a crutch that didn’t hurt a user’s armpits.

I had Partha on the show to discuss how to find products to improve upon, how to do market research and how to build relationships with investors.
