Matt Clifford has helped accelerate the businesses of over 1000 entrepreneurs. He's the co-founder of Entrepreneur First, the world's leading technology talent investor. Entrepreneur First brings together extraordinary people to build startups from scratch in London, Singapore, Berlin, Hong Kong, Paris and Bangalore.
I really enjoyed this conversation about entrepreneurship, being a founder, and how to get started if you are feeling called to be an entrepreneur. We discuss the Mom test for business validity and how Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn, became a backer for Entrepreneur First. Matt and Entrepreneur First have helped fund over 100 companies including Magic Pony Technology which was acquired by twitter.
In this episode, Matt shares his thoughts on what it means to be an entrepreneur, the mindset of an entrepreneur, resources, and what it takes to become successful.
