Jason Calacanis, well known in the blogosphere and CEO of Weblogs, has a new show on Podtech Network called CalacanisCast. He did an interview with Ron Conway a legendary Silicon Valley Angel investor who has invested in about 500 companies in the past 15 years. Yes, that is 500 and not a typing error.
Anyone thinking about or beginning to put together a business should spend the 25 minutes or so and listen to Ron talk about what’s important to him and what he looks for. A direct link is at http://www.calacanis.com/2007/07/20/calacaniscast-beta-30/
There are lots of books or guides to developing a business, but hearing from someone who looks at about 5 deals a day and invests in an average of 33 deal a year, is priceless. It’s a great interview and more than worth the time.
