I got asked a question last week by a young entrepreneur on how she should best approach VCs. I told her to develop a relationships first before asking for money! Venture Capital, i.e. startup investing is a people’s business. A cheque is easily written, but as an investor I want to get to know you & your team better so I don't feel like I'm making an uninformed decision. This advice was also once given by Plern Tee Suraphongchai, who is a Partner at Venturra Capital in Singapore. “I wish entrepreneurs would come to build a relationship with me before asking me for money. So that by the time they need the money, I can make the decision relatively quickly as well." . #VC #venturecapital #startuplife #coffeewithmary at Italian Gardens

Finding common ground at @commonground.bln Had another great coffee meeting with a venture capitalist today ☕️ Among others, we talked about investment strategies, hot startups and new trends, but I also asked him about the development and change he has observed in the Berlin startup ecosystem. We see an increasing number of founders and people starting their own thing, which on the one hand is absolutely great, however, there are also so many “wantrapreneurs” out there who don’t really add any value. VCs get pitched many times and they see & meet tons of founders - it is therefore very satisfying to hear from an experienced investor who is an active player in the market, that “the quality of founders increased over the last year”. Focus should be on solving problems, helping others and providing value – ideally in a big enough market. . . #coffeewithmary #VC #venturecapital #startuplife at Commonground

Love my team mates & friends from @startupgrindberlin 🙌🏻 We had another great event last night with an outstanding speaker - @alexander_bersun Who shared his insights into the #Fintech industry and how he grew his own startup to one of the industry leaders. Evenings like this remind me of Startup Grind’s @startup mission - to educate, inspire & connect people!

Great to see Pavan Sukhdev, @wwf President today at @gteccenter ’s „Worldchangers in Tech“ event in Berlin. Even better to meet him in person, especially since I studied his work as part of my master at @ucl on putting a value on nature / pricing environmental services. He did an outstanding work with his @unitednations "Green Economy Initiative" and led the G8+5 study TEEB (The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity). . . #UCL #UCLalumni #reunion #London #economics #sustainabilty #ecosystem #biodiversity #nature #environment at GTEC - German Tech Entrepreneurship Center

Besides classics like 80:20 Pareto principle, I always love to come back to this science-based method that helps me structure my work and get things done more effectively: Pomodoro technique! 🍅 The magic of it is that it’s ‘only’ 25 minutes of a work/ study sessions. You focus solely on your task - do not let yourself get distracted by other things ;-) #VC #startupinvesting #investment #framework #startuplife #startups #hustle #grind #keepgrinding #focus #work #effective #effectiveness #pomodoro #timemanagement
