How to Get Into the Venture World?
The easiest way to get into a venture is to be really successful in some other places, and then use your own money and start making investments
Before Making an Investment
Every time when you are going to make an investment, you should look at this investment relative to every other place you could put this cheque.
What to Avoid?
One of the ways to set yourself up to make a bad decision, we would argue, is to limit your alternative set.
Where to Get Funding?
If you get funding from a venture fund, that's a great way to meet people and to know people.
The Challenge in Startups
The big challenge in the startup world is that it's difficult to know if you're doing well or not for years down the road.
The Life Attitude to Rock
Live life with adventure, meet challenges with love, be true to yourself.
