E003: Investing in startups and nurturing them, with Yuchen Chan

Featuring, as a guest, Yuchen Chan, investor and entrepreneur, founder of Redpoint Holdings LLC.

Artur and Marian find out what investors look for in the ideas pitched to them and in the teams that do the pitching, and how investors can help their investments grow by advising the founders (and if it works in practice).

Learn why it’s crucial to find the right investor for your idea, how to ensure you present yourself as credible, how to best use the face time you have with potential investors, and what red flags to avoid.

Also find out the differences between European and American entrepreneurs, how dog toys can be a great business idea, and who is the rightful owner of Yuchen’s desk.
