#tbt: On European startups and funding with CEO of AngelList

05.29.2014, Startups, by .

Throwback Thursday? We’ll spare you childhood pics. Here’s an interview with Naval Ravikant we did 2.5 years ago I just came across. Lots has changed. For example, AngelList has shot up to fame and prominence, seriously challenging the status quo in Silicon Valley and beyond. And the idea of a startup in Central and Eastern Europe doesn’t sound crazy anymore. Yet, I found a lot of the advice doled out in the interview still relevant today and thought many of our newer readers would enjoy it, too.

  1. Hi Ethan,I ran comehike.com (product not as great as nssrceaey for consumers) and problemio.com (product not made in a way consumers prefer to use it) so in those cases the product wow-factor wasn’t there in my opinion.Also, if I answer, its not as great as if Naval answers. :) So from the lessons I learned, its quality across the board.Also, the wow really happens when you very much help someone. So if product is good, and solves a real need, and founders are responsive, I think thats the combo for the eventual wow-factor and true fans.What do you think?
