Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed: Ann Winblad

by Scott Edward Walker on July 25th, 2012

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Ann Winblad, the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Hummer Winblad Venture Partners.

In this brief clip (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner), Ann discusses the importance of startups identifying and testing its core assumptions.  Indeed, this is a critical point that many founders overlook.  I hope you enjoy it.  Many thanks, Scott
