It’s important for a Founder to be a shock absorber and single-minded long enough to get lucky

We always enjoy the blogposts from David Cummings, Founder of the Atlanta Tech Village and also Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Atlanta Ventures. Two of his latest ones are short and to the point while painting a great picture and also relate to conversations he overheard.

  • The newest describes the role of a Founder as serving as “a shock absorber for the start-up; and
  • The other ends with this key point: “The next time an entrepreneur asks what it takes to be successful, consider the idea, ‘be single-minded long enough to get lucky.’”
