    • A brief moment of optimism from an otherwise glass ½ empty kind of CFO… Why Your Startup Will Succeed! www.startupcfo.ca
    • YOU SERVE A REAL NEED Copyright © 2009- Mark MacLeod This… Not this… You provide real value to your users. If you don't do this, stop reading, because you WILL fail
    • YOU KNOW WHAT MATTERS Copyright © 2009 - Mark MacLeod You spend all your time improving the experience and engaging users : There's no magic secret. You just need to hustle. Constantly improve (i.e. simplify) the user experience. Constantly reach out to users. Listen to them. Talk to them. Turn them into ambassadors.
    • WE’RE AL THE SAME! Copyright © 2009 - Mark MacLeod These guys were all nobodies before they became somebodies .
    • SMART MONEY IS INVESTING Copyright © 2009 - Mark MacLeod Who's the smartest investor around? Warren Buffet. What's he doing? Putting billions of $ to work. Smart investors are active - NOW!
    • YOU DON’T NEED VC$
      • The cost of starting and getting to market is going down all the time. If you're a web startup, you probably don't want VC$ anyway. Sell services, sell your body. Raise angel $ - get going! Don't believe me -ask SocialMedian.

    • NOBODY KNOWS ANYWAY! Copyright © 2008 - Mark MacLeod Nobody knows which startup will succeed or fail. Remember, Skype was turned down by over 40 VCs before it went on to exit for more than $2B.
    • YOU’RE AN ENTREPENEUR !
      • You’re not some guy in a cubicle forgetting to put covers on TPS reports
      • You’re an entrepreneur. No matter what people tell you, you’re on a mission
      Copyright © 2009 - Mark MacLeod
    • YOU’RE PASSIONATE!
      • This is a bit redundant, since ALL successful entrepreneurs are passionate
      • Passion is key. You won’t win without it – but you know that
