the well-known angel investors, serial entrepreneur Jason · (Jason Calananis) recently caraca nice in his blog wrote, "enterprise" is a blossom everywhere, but entrepreneurship is extremely hard and bitter Road, many people do not have the conditions of entrepreneurship. Caraca nice has invested in companies such as Uber.
below is the full text of the article:
"you don’t have the conditions for success." I said to an entrepreneur. He looked at me, just like that I screwed up the children become dejected and despondent.
he protested: "I do not, I want to work than anyone else."
"it doesn’t matter how hard you try, it’s important to solve the problem with the least amount of effort." I had to tell him that.

for business incubator demo day or AngelList, the establishment of 3 months valuation of $8 million venture capital companies, smart investors will never think: this price is quite reasonable." These greedy guys always think, "the entrepreneur wants me to get 2 to 3 times the price. But if one of my 50 investments became a unicorn, I’d make a profit."
in other words, entrepreneurs should be aware of this: "I do offer.
