Do you have what it takes?

Do you have what it takes? | Travel Startup Hub | Scoop.it
I was speaking with an investor on the phone recently.
I described that we were raising capital to build Travel Startups Incubator into a $1B global business.
I could tell right away he didn’t know much about travel technology.
He had a lot of knowledge, passion, and money, but no real travel experience.
That’s OK because I knew he was a savvy investor.

He asked, “Matt, how does Travel Startups Incubator know what to invest in?”
What a great question.
