Startups are hard work and not to be taken lightly. Ideas come and go, they evolve, and they change. Execution and resilience trump better ideas with poor execution.
I participated as a mentor for startups at DPWorld’s Turn8 program to help them launch their business (the startups were at a Seed Funding level). DP world also had representatives in the jury who took an active interest in the startups.
Confidence and public speaking capabilities play a major role at the seed level (which got me thinking about 3.4 year old Lea and 1.4 year old Jad, and if this is something their education path will prepare them for).
