5:09 Andrew was based in Peru with AP, but wanted to branch out to Digital first; Find that intersection between news and tech.

5:16 The ability to assess an industry and find the needs, while also telling a compelling story is fundamental in start-ups.

5:19 It takes 'humility' to combine technology-driven people with content-driven team. And to always communicate, even over-communicate.

5:22 On starting Delve News: "It is a long, grueling journey to raising money."

5:25 Competing in the Bay Area with so many other start-ups: "You always have to have your head on a swivel."
