I want to take an honest shot at tech entrepreneurship in a few years. As I'm working on developing behaviors expected at Staff-level, I want to specifically focus on skills which will help me become a good entrepreneur down the road. Feel free to mention skills that map to any other level or where level doesn't even matter, as long as they relate to tech entrepreneurship.
I love this question! The good news is that there's a ton of overlap.
Here are the 3 big areas for me:

I'm assuming tech entrepreneurship means you'd like to build a SaaS. The overlap in terms of developing the product will always be there unless you branch out from web dev into an AI/ML product where there will be a learning curve.
As an early stage entrepreneur myself, I think it's important to call out the common gaps that typically occur from those coming from an engineering background.
One final thought: It's common to go through a period of learning to not directly trade your time for money as well as decoupling your efforts vs. your rewards. In corporate, it's by in large fixed time for fixed pay. The whole point of entrepreneurship is to use your time to build assets that give you earning leverage (i.e. the SaaS in your case) and your pay if generated through the asset (not directly 1:1 through your time).
I think deeply about this topic on a daily basis now that both my wife and I quit our corporate jobs for entrepreneurship.
DM me if you'd like to chat, happy to pass my learnings along.
