Foundations of Entrepreneurship Class #1

Last night was my first Foundations of Entrepreneurship class session taught by T.A. McCann. I plan to post a few interesting insights I learn and thoughts that are sparked  each week after class.

  • Most good companies struggle for 12 months. Failure and resilience are part of the start-up process. Sounds a lot like graduate school!
  • Luck is an important part of success but it will only come if you are in the game.
  • Always be working on 5-10 ideas at a time. You are more likely to find the right coworkers, right investors, right trends, and right customers if you have a diverse set of potential start-ups. 
  • Hire people with diverse skills but the same outlook on life and success.
