CATAGEN is an awesome company, everyone’s got your back and is always ready to lend a hand. Seriously, there’s no such thing as a ‘silly’ question here. Don’t stress about trying to be a tech genius or a lingo pro right from the get-go, that’ll all come with time. And when it comes to areas like funding, marketing, and finance, you don’t have to be a walking encyclopedia – just focus on your role, and the rest will fall into place.
