What are the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs today?
874_ 7/29/10- Larry Interviewed the leaders Michael Joseph and Tom Feldhusen of VacationRentalPartner, which is part of the 2010 TechStars Class. When asked, "What do you think are the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs today?' They replied, ": I think these challenges are also what makes it exciting, basically everyday you're doing ten thousand things that are way out of your comfort zone. But, of course, with TechStars you have such a great support system around you. Great mentors, great other teams to work with, David and everyone here are just amazing. They just take it all, and the learning, kind of speeds it up and makes it easier to do all those ten thousand things." When asked, "What about raising money, have you tried yet?" They had a very common but important view for new entrepreneurs, "We've raised a little, from friends and family and of course the TechStars money pays the rent. I think that ties into your previous question about challenges. It's still really inexpensive to start a company and as a result there are lots of people starting companies and there's a lot of competition for the VC dollars and Angel dollars that are out there. So one of the challenges is it is a very competitive landscape out there. Especially in today's economy." ...listen for details...VacationRentalPartner makes it easy for owners to generate income from their second homes. and we eliminate the need for owners to pay 30 to 50% commission by providing tools that replace management company services.
