MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA–Vonage co-founder and voice-over-IP pioneer Jeff Pulver has invested in over 400 startups. If the secret of getting good at something is doing it over and over again, he should be pretty good by now.
Today he shared his rock band theory of startup teams at TechBeach Retreatin Jamaica.
“If I take a meeting with an entrepreneur, I’m inclined to invest,” Pulver said. “I know within about three minutes, generally, if I’m going to invest … then they have 17 minutes to convince me not to.”
Then he asks five “rock star” questions.
