Sometimes, after I speak at a tech conference, someone will come up to me and say: “Hey! You should check out my new startup.”
They give me the elevator pitch, then they ask: “What do you think?”
They’re beaming. They’re enthusiastic. And there is no polite way to say: “Statistically speaking, you’d be doomed to failure even if your idea wasn’t dumb as a sack of hammers.”
A little quiz to help prevent time being wasted (and smashing dreams).
