One of the biggest challenges for new entrepreneurs is trying not to fall in love with your idea. Being blinded by love, leaves startup founders vulnerable to making bad decisions, like squandering VC money and ignoring customer needs. Instead, in this talk from the Berlin Founder Institute, Ofer Akerman advises new founders to stay mindful, and remember - “Investors don’t give you money to stay in love. They give you money to make more money.”
