Advice Randall Kempner, Executive Director:
Do: Be real: “A lot of investors see a lot of people who come in and try to sell them these grand ideas […] and trying to overestimate what you can do is not going to help you.”
Don’t: Be overconfident: “These markets are so new, and most of the products and the business models haven’t actually been tried,” especially with new technologies. So it’s ok to admit you don’t know exactly what will happen.
