Companies don't sponsor
ideas much anymore, they sponsor
results. You must have a complete package. A great story, a great history
of hard work towards this goal, and you must be photogenic.
I read an interview recently of a successful venture capitalist. He said that he doesn't listen to new ideas anymore. New ideas are easy to develop. He looks for results not ideas. He said that Windows wasn't the first OS, Facebook wasn't the first social media website, google
wasn't the first search engine
, etc. The first with a new idea isn't even close to enough for him, he wants to see an exceptional track record
of hard work and success. You might want to successfully cross an ocean(even a small ocean) before you set out to go around the world.
