Dream Big: Create and Make Your Own Startup Reality
By Alan Weinkrantz
As part of our outreach into the various startup communities around Israel, the team from TAU Innovation Week / TLV Startup Challenge was on hand at an event with Erik Torenberg, member of the startup team from Product Hunt, and Slava Rubin, CEO of Indiegogo.
While I encourage you to view the whole thing, if you don’t have time, fast forward to 10:05 and listen to some very profound words of wisdom from Slava Rubin.
No, this not about crushing it, killing, scaling and being awesome.
It’s about creating- and making your own reality.
Slava also shares his insights on the three myths of startup life:
· why you don’t need a business plan
· why you don’t need a lot of money to get started,
· that being an entrepreneur is linear.
Pay attention to the last point in particular.
Being an entrepreneur is about having the ability to navigate a parallel path.
There’s the real world – the reality which we all live in.
There is the dream world.
It’s what we have inside our head and what we believe to be true.
For a good entrepreneur, the challenge is to create and make your own reality.
Watch and learn.
Be inspired and cross the chasm.
I hope to learn more about your dreams at the TLV Startup Challenge.
