I got on TV the other day, thanks to Plug and Play – it was a feature about why international entrepreneurs were flocking to silicon valley. I was there as part of iExpo, Plug and Play’s international expo day, where 35 companies from around the world pitched in front of an audience of 60 VCs and 400 silicon valleyites. It was great fun, and we actually came in 2nd!
I am now the proud owner of a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab.

“But being able to handle rejection, and even seek it out, is a crucial skill for entrepreneurs. The flip side of getting rejected over and over again, of course, is perseverance. It doesn’t matter if 49 VCs pass on your startup if the 50th one hands you a check for $1 million, or if 24 engineers say No, but the 25th is a rockstar who says Yes. Getting to yes means letting the negativity wash over you.”
