In an article today from VC Fred Wilson:
"Capital is not normally a recipe for success vs competition. Product execution, network effects, go to market strategies, and a few other things are what allows companies to win the market. Access to capital and raising a boatload of it is rarely the thing that wins the market."
I gave a talk recently where I said that Ideas were worthless. Ideas are free and a dime a dozen. Execution is where it is at. Without execution, an idea is just a dream.
My projects are usually about execution or improving execution.
[This Saturday, 11/14/14, I will be mentoring at Startup Weekend Tampa Bay mainly on execution and go-to-market.]
