Pucker up. Timing can mean everything.

October 10, 2008

You’ve got a great idea.

You have made all the right moves.

You’ve invested all of your money into building an awesome prototype.

Potential clients love it! You even have a list of pre-sales and some great leads on manufacturing.

You have the perfect business plan and stellar financials that would withstand the stingiest venture capitalists.

Then along comes the economy and “poof” everything disappears.
VCs throw cold water on portfolio companies
“RIP: Good Times” from Sequioa
Angel investor Ron Conway to portfolio: Cut expenses now

On top of everything else, you have to have timing… P.S. This isn’t it.
