7 Lessons from 500, YC, Angelpad alum — How to Prepare For Any Accelerator Interview

7 Lessons from 500, YC, Angelpad alum — How to Prepare For Any Accelerator Interview | Startups | Scoop.it

This month 500 Startups and General Assembly teamed up to hold a pre-accelerator program. Last week, we had our mini Demo Day:

I led the final week of the program where, in addition to 60-second pitch workshops, Angel.co profile show-and-tell, and pitch deck review sessions, I organized mock accelerator interviews.

To help me, I called a few of my friends*, Ryan Jackson of Paid and Andrew Norris of Taplytics, both YCombinator alums, Mason Blake at UpCounsel and Tristan Pollock of Storefront (now EIR @500) who went through AngelPad, and Selcuk Atli and me from 500Startups (both of us with YC backgrounds from Boostable/inDinero).

We started with a panel introducing ourselves and the accelerator processes: YC does 10 minute interviews with a few partners and cares more about founders than ideas; 500 does a deeper dive over 20–30 min and focuses on people and growth. With Angelpad, you’ll be talking to Thomas and Carine, and there will be fewer companies in your cohort. Each pre-accelerator company then had a 5-minute mock interview with us.

Despite the differences between us and our accelerators, the six of us noticed very similar patterns in the founders. The following mistakes to avoid and advice will help you prepare for any accelerator interview (and some investor conversations, too!)

There’s a dark side to startups, and it haunts 30% of the world’s most brilliant people

There’s a dark side to startups, and it haunts 30% of the world’s most brilliant people | Startups | Scoop.it
Tech entrepreneurs are struggling with depression in secret. Here's how some in the industry want to change that.

The smile on Austen Heinz's face was unguarded and brief. It was the involuntary, small upturn of the corners the mouth that escapes when something genuinely makes you happy.

For Heinz, it was seeing the surfers at Del Mar. He raised his phone to snap a photo for a friend.

Mike Alfred saw the grin on his face, so he took his own photo of his friend's happiness.

Heinz’s long, curly brown hair is whipping back in the wind secured only by a green San Francisco hat. A black North Face vest, one he’s wearing in most photographs, covers his dress shirt.

“He smiled for a brief moment, and it was so beautiful,” Alfred said. "That's the last picture I have of him smiling."

Heinz’s love of surfing with his sister, Jean, would be noted in his obituary, published a month later.

The founder and CEO of Cambrian Genomics took his own life May 24, two weeks after the trip to Del Mar. He was 31.

When news slowly spread on Twitter that Heinz had died by suicide, many were crushed and surprised.

"That was a reminder to me that you can’t predict which founders are struggling," said Y Combinator president Sam Altman. Read more: click image or title.

How Working With The Venture Capital Firms Can Help Your Startup Earn Huge Profits?

How Working With The Venture Capital Firms Can Help Your Startup Earn Huge Profits? | Startups | Scoop.it

Venture capital is the money invested to support small, unproven or newly started businesses which are typically not bankable but have a bright future. To be true, venture capital is not meant for all and the fund is too hard to raise. So, it is advisable to be realistic in your approach to the various startup funding methods, especially if it is venture capital. If you are looking for the venture capital firms to invest in your startup, you better be ready with all the essential requirements.

The venture capital firms prefer to invest only in those startups that can return their investments not just with the interest but also with huge profits. Also, if you are highly concerned about your control over the company, it is better to look for a source other than venture capital as the investors will be actively involved in the critical matters of the company so as to ensure that the company is moving in the right direction to gain huge profits.

 

If everything falls in place, i.e., you have a viable business plan, a great management team, a strong network and someone who can introduce you to the venture capital firms, you cannot even imagine how efficiently your business is going to run under the guidance of these venture capitalists.

How To Become Successful By Changing Your Self-Image

How To Become Successful By Changing Your Self-Image | Startups | Scoop.it

 

There are many books written on how to become successful.

Unfortunately, many of them only focus on taking certain actions to achieve success such as calling more prospects for business success or having stricter diet for weight loss success.

 

To become truly successful you have to dig deeper than that.

You can only become as successful as your self-image allows you to become.

 

Negative self-image is the exact reason why some people seem to never achieve anything great.

 

They try their best, they listen to uplifting audio messages, they try to be as positive as they can, but their results stay exactly the same...

 

If you have a negative self-image, you cannot achieve success because that would contradict with who you currently are.

 

The feelings of fear, being not good enough or distrust of your own abilities are the indicators that you want to pursue something greater than your self-image allows you to have...
