According to Gustovo, the biggest challenged he faced while building his startup, was building of a team. As every empire needs its pillars, so every startup needs its team members. And getting them motivated to the same level is always a big challenge for a first time entrepreneur.
Funding itself also comes up with its own challenges, keeping investors interested, is keeping traction, and all the startup needs is a growth. So, team need to build enough traction to keep investors on-board. Gustovo adds here,

The rewarding stage for any startup is not giving up and build something with your team that you aimed for, and keep moving forward, according to Gustovo.
