Don’t become an entrepreneur unless you are insane

In December I spoke at BiTS Iserlohn to a crowd of eager and interested students. Most of them didn’t have their own startups (yet). Some were thinking about founding one.

I came with this talk and think I might have scared off some of them. It wasn’t really my intention, although I admit the title “Don’t become an entrepreneur unless you are insane” doesn’t really support that point.

I think it is important to get real about entrepreneurship. I want to cut through the hype and tell the story as I have experienced it and seen with other entrepreneurs.

What do you think about this presentation? Is it too harsh?

I have also posted a couple other presentations.
On Soundcloud I provide some context on this post and the talk above.
