I was listening recently to Reid Hoffman’s podcast, Masters of Scale. Listen to the third episode, The Beauty of a Bad Idea. I would link directly to it, but the site is weird and there’s no direct link, so find it for yourself.
The reason I think you should listen to the episode is that it tells the story of getting rejections from VCs. It gives you an idea of how to handle those rejections and, most importantly, how to identify investors that might waste your time. That’s because some VCs don’t really understand what you’re doing, but they just don’t want to say NO. And it means you waste valuable time, time you don’t really have.
It’s 30 minutes, go and listen to it.
