TradeBriefs Editorial From the Editor's Desk

What Makes an Entrepreneur (8/11): Detail Orientation - Mark Suster
One of the easiest ways to rule out people who are pitching to me is when they don't know the details of their business. There are easy tell-tale signs. I'll start with an obvious one -- I talk with the entrepreneur about competitors. You can always tell during this discussion whether the entrepreneur has logged into their products, talked to their customers, read all the news stories and gotten all of the back channel info on the competition. You can tell if they have a deep-seated competitive spirit. Can't go a mile deep on competition? Buh-bye.
Let's talk about your product or let's look at your financial projections. Can't walk me through it on a granular basis? Did someone else pull your financial model together while you did "your job?" Not good enough. The best entrepreneurs focus on details. They can tell you the square foot costs of their property, they can tell you how much they spend on Amazon Web Services every month, they can tell you the 12 features that you're working on for your next release.
