Investor surprised

A question was asked to an Investor ‘Sir.. is my product so bad.. am not getting any investors for this’

The investor smiled and said ‘The product comes secondary.. your profile reports are available with many’

Entrepreneur ‘I do shared deck with so many folks’

Investor ‘no dear.. your behavior analytic report being shared to us’

Entrepreneur ‘but as per GDPR, my private information cannot be shared’

Investor ‘what is that? I never heard of it’

Secrets of Investor

Investor Roy addresses secrets of investors to a bunch of zapped entrepreneurs

  1. We always wish someone leads first… then we can follow on
  2. We never invest in something not already done
  3. We want only full time resources who head the venture.. no part time entrepreneurs
  4. We will ensure shares are vested…  we are paranoid of entrepreneurs who wish to exit in between
  5. We prefer a 26% shares to get better control on startup
  6. Startup needs to have an exit plan else it is meaningless
  7. We are investors who wish return on investments.. it is not our baby.
  8. We do not wish employees in garb of entrepreneurs. We do not want them to get salaries during boot strapping phase.
  9. We prefer entrepreneurs who have succeeded earlier
  10. We prefer individuals from top tier institutes being founders..

At end of session

A student ”Sir ours is a B grade college, I guess.  so not sure why you came here to give this GYAN (knowledge)…

Investor ”hey.. I was kept informed that you are accredited A class institute..”

Student ”Sir..  all institutes are A class only here.. but we have over 80% B class candidates so not sure whether we should seek job or start a venture”

Investor ”am not sure… how we go about then.. best of lucks”

After the class a student whispers ”all this hype is only for ones who know this game of entrepreneurship…   this game needs to be understood to even rural /town candidates”

 

 

 

Startup Struggle

Startup Struggle is a journey which begins from an idea and then to product and during this phase the struggle is more towards completing minimum viable product and experiment in market..

What is the story around the struggle?

The story is that everything looks realistic as long as cash exists.. the moment cash is burnt, everything looks unrealistic. Why does money make same object look different is not known to many till date…

Startup struggle is to understand the perception theory of investors, stakeholders, self and family members…

Is this a story in first place?

It is not.. why will anyone bother for a jobless entrepreneur who never got into job in first place…  however the same entrepreneur now gets hold of another jobless entrepreneur from a large company with huge connects…  two negatives become positive..

life is such ..that if two depressed people meet each other, there are chances they will fall in love with each other if left alone.. or even if two happy individuals.. but what if a happy and depressed person gets together…  here dear + x – = – never works.. rather the happy person may make the other person happier… or depressed person will make other person depressed…    it means + x –  can be + too..  everything is perceptive

Story is –  perceive things for what you see and feel and not for what your hear.. as heard story can be false too

 

Stories of life

Nancy ”Stories of life is a beginning of expressing self freely…  multiple websites allow such expressions, however the unique point is”

Joy ”it is all about confessing what mistakes we committed in life and lessons learnt from it”

Fred the investor ”what is the revenue model?”

Joy ”each person makes a mistake in life..  a 0.001 cent for each lesson learnt”

Investor ”why you feel… a reader will be interested in getting into this site”

Fred ”only because… these mistakes will be expressed by very senior big wigs”

Investor ”not convinced yet.. but do begin with this idea.. and reach out to me after 1 month”

After a month

Investor ”so how many logged in”

Fred ”100”

Investo çan I see?

Fred puts it on projector

Investor is shocked

Fred ”your wife felt she made a mistake marrying you as you stopped caring for her way back.. and lessons learnt was to never marry in haste”

Investor ”common.. why you reached to my wife?

Nancy ”Sir.. no better way then to explain the impact to you”

Investor pauses and says ”still am not funding you”

In evening..

Investor reaches home and takes his wife for dinner

Investor ”do you really feel you married in haste”

Wife ýes..”

Investor hugs his wife

Wife ”why this sudden flush of love?”

Investor ”I realized that stories of life if read back, can bring in new changes to our own thought process”

Entrepreneur ”Even I don’t have the money.. we spent in staff and marketing”

Investor ”but what we gained of all this?”

Entrepreneur ”more investors began showing interest.. relax Sir, we will get subsequent round of funding?’

Investor ”I need a clear exit after 1 year”

Entrepreneur ”me too may exit.. let the investor only run the venture.. am fedup of working as employee in garb of showing myself as an entrepreneur.. finally am still in listening mode only.. no flexibility”
