Bambi Francisco from did this interview with Yoav Leitersdorf at Innovate!Europe conference, held in Zaragoza, Spain.

It shares some great and simple to understand tips for new start-up entrepreneurs:

  1. Get to revenue quickly
  2. Raise as little capital as possible
  3. Learn to be lucky (increase your opportunities to be lucky)

The one extra tip was, it’s OK to fail. European entrepreneurs seem to have VERY different viewpoint to failure. European failed entrepreneurs rarely continue as entrepreneurs and start something new, when in US the most successful entrepreneurs have failed in past. I think this is a VERY important lesson. Europeans should understand to value their biggest lesson that they get from their failure!
