Video: Want to Be an Entrepreneur? Listen to Angel Investor Naval Ravikant

When it comes to starting a business, it’s hard to top Naval Ravikant’s CV. As an entrepreneur, he co-founded Epinions.com and Vast.com; and as an angel investor, he’s helped fund companies like Disqus and Twitter. We wanted to find out what makes an ambitious man like this tick, so we asked him to sit down for a brief video chat about entrepreneurship.

If you have aspirations to start your own business, watch the video as Ravikant discusses:

  • The three traits you need to look for in a partner
  • How important it is to be in Silicon Valley
  • How to get a meeting with an investor
  • Whether you should be public or private with your idea
