Strategy Roundtable: Fall Call To Action

Summer is over. Time to get back to work. At today’s roundtable, I synthesized some posts from our blog to give entrepreneurs, incubators, investors, and economic development agencies a flavor of what we’ve been doing this summer to make life easier for you.

In How Not To Sell Equity Too Cheap, Too Soon, entrepreneurs would find a discussion of what we recommend when it comes to selling incubation-stage equity. Also, please do not go banging on the doors of investors without first validating your business and knowing that your project is fundable. How to Become a Fundable Entrepreneur explains some of the issues we are seeing in the market. Please also read: The Myth About Seed Funding. Ninety-nine percent of the entrepreneurs seeking funding get rejected. We do NOT want you to be one of them.

Fool’s Gold and the Real Deal

In How To Turn Fool’s Gold Into The Real Thing, angel investors would find an analysis of the inefficiencies in sourcing and grooming good deals, and our proposed solutions.

Development Agencies and Regional Incubators, please read: Does Your Region Experience Brain Drain Of Technology Entrepreneurs? and Is Your Region Full Of Savvy Entrepreneurs? Also relevant: How Do You Scale Mentoring? and How To Access Silicon Valley’s Tribal Knowledge. Together, they provide an ensemble of solutions to problems that many incubators and accelerators, as well as economic development agencies, face.

Also, we’re starting to experiment with pre-incubation ideas with some of you. Please reach out if you’d like to start a pre-incubation pilot.

Finally, if you are still wondering about the 1M/1M premium program, please read: Free vs. Paid Help For Entrepreneurs. Further questions? Call Irina at 786-301-2456.

Summer is over. Let’s make things move!

You can listen to the recording of today’s roundtable here. We had an excellent Q&A at today’s session. There were people from Argentina, Israel, India, France, New York, Washington, Nigeria, etc. I always enjoy the international footprint of the program and hope that you do as well.

I would very much like to hear about your business, so let me invite you to come and pitch at one of our free 1M/1M public roundtables. We will be holding future roundtables at 8:00 a.m. PDT on the following dates:

You can also take the 1M/1M self-assessment test here. If you have additional questions, please email me, and I would be very happy to respond. Please note, that I work exclusively with 1M/1M entrepreneurs.
