Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: David Hornik

by Scott Edward Walker on April 19th, 2012

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present David Hornik, a partner at August Capital and indeed a very smart investor.  (Incidentally, David’s portfolio company, Splunk, just went public today.)

In this interesting brief clip, David discusses what makes a great pitch to investors, including the importance of (i) “selling a vision” (both the person and the project); and (ii) “capturing my imagination.”  I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks, Scott
