Starting Your Startup Video At TechStars

I just finished watching a video presentation from TechStars called “Starting your Startup” with a panel composed of Todd Vernon, Brad Feld, and David Cohen.  Great stuff.  For those of you who need the Cliff’s Notes version of the video, here’s the shorter version, although I really recommend you watch the video:

  1. Figure out what you can be the best in the world at.
  2. Don’t worry too much about competitors at the beginning.
  3. Mentorship is important and often undervalued.
  4. Focus.
  5. There’s a fine line between being true to your focus and being responsive to customers.
  6. Aim for intellectual honesty, check your reality, and recalibrate often.
  7. Listen more than you talk.
