Some Thoughts On TechStars and Advice for Young Entrepreneurs

Comments (18)

Steve Bell of StartupTrek once again does a nice job of capturing my thoughts in under 7 minutes – this time on TechStars and some advice for young entrepreneurs.

    I really want to watch these two videos, but I'm unable to play them in my browser… Firefox 3.6.3 for Mac

      Ryan – per Brad – definitely strange! Sorry about that. We will get it fixed right away, and let Brad know what the problem was.

      Thanks for your interest in the video. I'm as perplexed as you are, as a fellow Firefox user on OSX (I'm on 3.6.3 too).

      One idea, try it on StartupTrek.TV — I have watched it there on 3.6.3. Anyway we will square this away in short order.

      Just heard back from our video hosting provider, they say one of their servers was misconfigured; it was a system-wide problem effecting thousands of videos. Should work ok now, if not would appreciate you letting me know — steve@startuptrek.net

    Strange – I’ll look into it.

      It is working fine on Safari. Great advice in the video. Thanks.

    Glad it is working. Thanks for the kind feedback.

    What an important thing you've said: "make sure you like the people who you're working with". It really makes the difference between a hit and a fail. Thanks for the video although I'm having more regrets now that we weren't selected for Boulder.

    One question: I have received an encouraging email from Techstars, after the Boulder's notification day, to reapply for Seattle. Are there different interests in the selection process?

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/bfeld Brad Feld

    Yes – there are different investor groups in each city and the selection processes (and interests) vary.

    • http://intensedebate.com/profiles/razvanct Razvan Tirboaca

      That's great, thank you! It make sense to reapply.

    Very interesting! As a startup, we have already passed the stage of thoughts & development & will soon need to seek our first round of funding. any advice on how to determine the right VCs, keeping in mind that the right ones might already have interest in my competition

    Great advice on teams. So often work gets delayed just because of personality frictions… and who would go the extra mile with a team you don't really love that much?
