Startup Pitching and Adrenaline Management

Grant Canary

"In the case of pitching, however, I identified high heart rate as a negative. Using my Fitbit, I monitored my heart rate prior to going on stage for different pitches leading up to Demo Day — just and as I would for swimming. The lower my heart rate, the more progress I felt I was making. This was my North Star."

Every Startup Needs to Start Measuring NPS

Dana Severson

"Look no further than venture capitalist and Godfather of SaaS, Jason Lemkin. The prolific investor recently stated, 'Track NPS as a core, monthly metric. Share it with everyone. And importantly — use it for a cross-functional discussion across Sales, Support, Customer Success, Marketing, Engineering, and Product.'"

Tomasz Tunguz

"To attain Inbox Zero, I forward emails that I can’t answer immediately to a task list. It’s really easy now with the Front/Asana integration."

Should You Take Small Checks From Deep Pockets?

Christoph Janz

"For entrepreneurs, more VCs investing into seed rounds means easier access to capital. And as mentioned before, founders who raise a seed round from a large VC also get the benefit of getting a brand name VC on board early on and potentially they can tap into the firm’s support network. So far, so good - sounds like a win/win."
