Venture investors say the top 3 key criteria to success in investing is “People, People, People” but what skill sets and personality attributes set successful entrepreneurs apart? Is there a blueprint to entrepreneur success that guarantees an investment decision? Will an “A Team” turn a “B Product” into a winner? Will a B team turn an A idea into a C level product? 


Let’s also turn the tables. How does a founder choose an investor? Will an all-star VC turn a good entrepreneur into a great company?  What are the signs to look for in an investor?? Could the wrong investor destroy what could have been a unicorn? 

What are the characteristics of a Good Entrepreneur? Industry expertise, unique product ideas… Or is it a personality trait like patience, persistence and problem solving…

What is a good VC investor from the entrepreneur view point? Is it the firm’s name or the partner’s track record? What does a good VC bring to the table besides money? Mentorship, strategic direction, connections…
It is my experience that mentoring is essential, not only for the product and strategic direction but for helping build a team that can scale the business... instead of just replacing them at the next stage of growth. 
Join us on May 6 at the TieCon to find out what can make or break a company in this partnership between founders and investors?
