Last night, I watched dozens of people pitch an idea to the gigantic crowd of Startup Weekend. I had a front row seat and I was filming the whole time, so I was paying close attention.
Here’s what I was thinking the whole time: if you aren’t a coder or designer, you better bring something amazing to the table.
No offense to anyone who was pitching, but chances are that if you can’t build it or you can’t design it, you better bring some other extraordinary skill to the table. Hell, at least be able to sell me on the idea so I’d want to help you build it!
People have been saying this over and over again in the startup world, but it rings true: ideas are a dime a dozen.
If you can’t execute, your idea is worthless.
