After spending the morning is Tuffy Cafe sending and replying to emails I headed down to San Jose for the first time on this trip. SVASE (silicon valley association of start up entrepreneurs) hosted a seminar on how to prepare a 10 side power point presentation that investors want to hear. And that was the key, as an entrepreneur you blast out how you will change the world with your vision but a potential investor wants to hear about a current market pain a potential customer has and how they will pay your business given you deliver a service that adds value to the customer i.e. they want a return on their money. Fair enough, really. A very valuable session.
Also met a software engineer to enthuse with my 'lifestyle linking' vision for www.infobiotech.co.uk
