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?
