Your Job is to Kill Your Stupid Idea

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-02-18

The Mentor Minute gives you exclusive startup video clips from the Founder Institute's worldwide network of 4,400+ mentors. For more Mentor Minutes, visit our Startup Founder 101 YouTube Channel

In this episode of the Mentor Minute, Adeo Ressi (CEO of the Founder Institute) explains the necessity of being honest with your startup ideas.

According to Adeo; 

"I guarantee that you should be talking about your idea all the time, soliciting feedback as much as possible and not worrying about people stealing your ideas." - Adeo Ressi

To learn how to develop good ideas, join Adeo March 5th at 6:30PM in Palo Alto to learn more about the Founder Institute and his upcoming semester. This free, intensive workshop will help you improve your pitching skills and understand the components of a great pitch, providing plenty of practice until you get it right.

If you could benefit from expert training and feedback to launch a company, apply to the Founder Institute today. We are currently accepting applications to a special semester in Silicon Valley led by Adeo Ressi, as well as many other cities worldwide
