Episode Description

The buzz: “It got a little stressful in my first 2 years of high school, trying to make conference calls with investors in between classes, but I definitely learned a lot of important time-management lessons” (Ben Casnocha). Young startups have big dreams of changing the world and staying independent, but their cash-strapped wallets cry out for a generous angel. In reality, they’re hoping a VC will offer coaching, business support and financial backing to fund development and continuous innovation so the startup can stay relevant, create jobs and grow. But how to pick the right investor, and when to adjust plans or disconnect? The experts speak. Aharon Weiner, Capriza: “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be” (Wayne Gretzky). Mark Noronha, SAP Startup Focus: “Any time is a good time to start a company” (Ron Conway, early stage investor). Join us for The Startup Mindset: Raising a Round - Money, VCs and Startups.
