SFBayTV Interview: Finding Good Startups

Innovate or Die is the Message!

Tune into Larry Rifkin’s American Trends, and listen to “Innovate or Die is the Message!

It’s a painful reality but we have seen corporate behemoths taken down by upstarts because they failed to focus on the changes in society and stuck to their outdated processes, often because they had so much invested in them.

How to Build a Startup with Little or No Money!

It is feasible to launch and scale a successful startup with millions of dollars in funding capital. But how does an entrepreneur launch and scale a successful startup if he or she has little or no money?

This is the situation most startup founders find themselves in. They want to build a world-changing business, but they don’t have enough money to rent a desk at a pricey co-working space, let alone launch their product.

The Book of Mistakes

My friend, Skip Prichard, just launched his new book called: The Book of Mistakes. You’ll love it and learn a lot.

Maybe you’ve heard one of these:

“You need to work harder!”

“The secret is getting more education. Go back to school.”

“Just be a suck-up at work to get ahead.”

  • But then you see that someone who doesn’t work as hard gets that management job.
  • You don’t have the time or money to get another degree.

Renato Ignacio, Founder of Minubia (Curaçao)

It was absolutely amazing to participate in two Founderspace programs: First in Curaçao and then in Silicon Valley itself. We really appreciate the broad scope and high quality of the sessions. All very interesting and real eye-openers.

With the enthusiastic leadership of Captain Hoff and the excellent guidance of Naomi we were able to enjoy the program and get truly inspired. And then there was our mentor and sometimes drill-sergeant Steve Austin. Incredible how much we learned from him in a short amount of time. Showing us how to mold our message and bridge the cultural differences elevated our pitch to another level.
