By Ayesha Rizvi (Multimedia & Editorial Assistant, Women 2.0)
Our second video of our HowTo video series is out and it's all about dealing with rejection and moving on from it. Rejection comes in all shapes and sizes, whether you've been pitching your company before investors, or to the live judges in our PITCH competition, it's always hard to deal with. This week's video sheds light on how to see the positive side of things when your company lacks what investors are looking for.
