I’ve been away with the family for a few days, but I’m back now and a little busy so just a brief post today – I hope you find it useful.
If you are thinking of starting a company or raising money you should take a look at this page on Sequoia’s website – it is a beautifully concise explanation of what they are looking for – and they know a thing or two about building successful companies having backed Apple, Cisco and Google, amongst many others. They list both what they look for in a company and in a business plan.
One day I will put an Esprit version of this on our website, and it will be pretty similar.
I broke with my tradition of announcing my breaks before I leave to go on holiday after a friend pointed out I was advertising my absence to potential burglars. The result is a little unsatisfactory as well though, and I will look for a safe way to communicate when I will be on hols for the next time.
