Here are five takeaways from my recent fireside chat with Dana Barrett at General Assembly Atlanta:

  1. If you have a great idea and market but you aren’t getting funded, look in the mirror.
  2. VCs get paid to write checks. All they’re looking for is the right idea with the right risk tolerance.
  3. Technology is all about being ambitious and lazy. It’s not about working hard. If you want to work hard, work at a coal mine.
  4. Competition is not only in the 404. Competition is global.
  5. Figure out how much capital you must have to never need more and work backwards from that number.
