I've seen a lot of fintech startups. Some ideas — they're just meh, while others knock your socks off. What's the difference? What makes an idea worth pursuing while others should be put out to pasture. This week's guest on the Tearsheet podcast is Dr Sean Wise.
Sean is a university professor, bestselling author, international business speaker, and partner at Ryerson Futures, a seed stage venture capital fund and technology accelerator. He spent five seasons as a consultant for CBC on the mega hit venture reality show Dragons' Den* *before moving in front of the camera as the host of the Naked Entrepreneur, which airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Sean joins us to talk about his new book, co-written with venture investor Brad Feld, called Startup Opportunities: Know When to Quit Your Day Job. We discuss how fintech entrepreneurs, investors and partners can size up ideas, partner, and grow the next generation of financial services.
