I heard 150 noes before first funding, reveals Dream11 founders
India's newest unicorn Dream 11 was founded in 2009 when founders Harsh Jain and Bhavit Sheth were living in a fantasy, trying to raise money for a fantasy cricket game. Harsh Jain revealed that they had heard 150 No's before they got their first funding. He said every single No came with a why, which taught him something about his business and how to grow. This really proves perseverance is what it takes.
