Startup brewing startup

Well, I like to be called an innovator. Entrepreneurship for me is a family thing. I wanted time to decide to take entrepreneurship as a career but fate plays its funny games some times.

This life, it seems, is too short for you to make a move from a well established career to a risky career of an entrepreneur. If you’re perturbed¬† by innovative ideas every now and then; I’d suggest you should try your luck in this line of business.

The name of the game is: key players at key positions. An innovative idea and a well-balanced team with brilliant past record is what angel investors and VCs seek. The current interest rate of 0.5% is proof enough that the pool of potential investors is huge. Seeking seed funding is not your goal.

You’re an innovator and you want to change the world with your inventions. Get a good idea and then pick a team or do it the other way around; its up to you. For the former adventure, there are plenty of places to seek a good team like Launch48 I recently attended.

I stumbled upon so many innovators and entrepreneurs at that event. I worked on somebody else’s idea and it was so much fun with you working on you own part and letting others work on their part.

I’m also looking for teammates for my startup slately; one techie/front-end guy and one business development guy are missing in the picture. I’m focusing all my energies on picking a super biz dev guy now as the startup I’m working on is majorly a sales business. I think, a person with primarily marketing but some sales experience with small/medium enterprise would be a good fit. Again, slately is a startup working on a tablet PC B2B application and we hope to go global in the coming years.

Things are moving fast and I’m talking to potential customers everyday. I hope to get to the point of signing a pre-order soon and from there life’d be a roller coaster ride!!!
