Went to a VR fireside chat with Edith Yeung, this investor from 500 Startups. The insights provided about what it takes to build a successful company were enlightening. Yes, you start with an idea. But you have to find the pain point you address. And even then, how do you find customers? How will you make money? Does that strategy work in your space? Mobile advertising is very different from web advertising, etc. More and more questions. More problems than one or two people can possibly address. It takes a capable team and will take a significant amount of time and effort to realize.
