Pažljivo slušajte ako vas zanima kako su povezani izraelski pojam i ideja "chutzpah” i način razmišljanja uspešnog startapa. Nastavite da slušate, jer Inbal opisuje startap u koji bi zajedno sa partnerkama iz investicionog fonda volela da uloži. Ostanite do kraja epizode, jer Inbal nesebično daje savete kako startap pronalazi pravog investitora.
2:20 You cannot have startups without angel investors.
3:30 There is a gap in the ecosystem here. A 15 year gap. Startups are talented people but that is not enough. Idea is not enough.
3:50 It is hard to be an entrepreneur. Not everybody can be an entrepreneur.
4:20 The local scene will be able to scale up only if the local money is put into startups.
4:30 No foreign investors will want to come if the local investors are not willing to take the risk themselves.
5:50 The evaluations of startups here are much lower than in Israel and US. This is lowering the risk for foreign investors. However, we do not know the regulations.
6:20 If you are an entrepreneur or startup, talk about it. You’ve got to talk about it. Nobody is going to steal your code or idea. If there is no market, there is no business.
7:30 You should ask for forgiveness because you are going to fail. Don’t ask for chance. One chance will not get you anywhere.
9:30 If you are looking locally, I will not invest. You have to look globally. You have to focus on one market in the beginning. But be able to scale to other countries. If you come with that - not only technology or product, then I can look into it.
10:40 Investor is your partner, this is a relationship. Don’t come only for his money or his connections. Don’t come only for his name. This is a long term partnership.
11:20 You have to remember, in the end, investor wants you to succeed. Your success is investor’s return.
