by Scott Edward Walker on May 17th, 2010

To Our Clients & Friends:

Welcome to our new weekly series entitled “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we will post a short video interview or presentation of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of business and management topics.  This week, we present Naval Ravikant, a smart entrepreneur and angel investor (courtesy of GigaOm TV), who discusses, among other things, (i) what to look for in a co-founder, (ii) the importance of Silicon Valley and (iii) how to get a meeting with an investor.  I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks, Scott
