Local Tech Wire

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – If you are an entrepreneur looking for investors and venture capital, be sure to check out Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s latest blog.

Titled “Success & Motivation: What Entrepreneurs Should NOT Do,” Cuban lays out in blunt, colorful terms many mistakes entrepreneurs should avoid.

The bottom line in making a pitch that could lead to a deal? His conclusion:

“If you are an entrepreneur who is looking for capital and is sending letters or emails of introduction, leave out the B(bleep). Say who you are. What you have. What makes it different than the competition. What you want to accomplish. How you plan on getting there and how I can help. Everything else will usually hurt more than it will help.”

In case you didn’t know, Cuban made his many millions in tech as an entrepreneur and he is investing as a VC as well as offering free advice.
