Posted by Amity Sims on 2014-05-01

At the 14th Founder Showcase, Slidefish founder, Neil Smith knew he would be in for a few hardball questions and some scrutiny from a panel of 5 VC judges. What he wasn't expecting, however, was getting asked one of the toughest questions of his entrepreneur journey.

  

What happens if Dropbox offers to buy your company for $75 million tomorrow?”

Watch the video below to hear Neil's response, and check out the full article on Startup Smart. Would this the most diffcult question you have ever heard from a judge?

We would love to hear your thoughts in the comment thread below.
