What's your most important piece of advice for startups?

Always be transparent with your whole team. In the early days, give the same amount of information to your interns and to your senior team—clear communication is the solution to many problems! ALWAYS listen to everybody, and make sure to gather people from different backgrounds when you need to make big decisions.
