Greg states that the most corrosive thing that can happen in a company is to have a debate continue after the decision has been made. He suggests that people who are supportive of decisions which they were against are very valuable to an organization.

Fraser believes alignment is the underlying principle to everthing we do. The work has to be fulfilling for the people who work in entreprenuerial ventures, she says. It is important to create an environment where people can excel.
Francis talks about how the NIH and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative in New York are also doing AIDS vaccine research. With the help of his foundation, Gates envisions establishing a network of 6-10 AIDS vaccine development centers that would be both competitive and collaborative in their mission to develop a vaccine.
Earl talks about how the majority of the products at EA are sequels that are released every year. The main decision for EA on these projects is budgeting how many people to work on each every year, he says. Occasionally, there is a new product idea. This idea must pass a lot of market opportunity analysis before it is launched because it is very expensive and risky to build a new product. Still, new products are seen as a critical part ...more
Martin Eberhard discusses the shortfalls of using Solar Energy as a key component in manufacturing a car. He believes that using fuel-cells to drive cars is a huge stretch in imagination. He finally notes that a mix of plug-in hybrid and gasoline is a viable idea for an interim solution for alternative energy sources to drive a car.
A million dollars should last any new venture at least a year. And companies are most productive when they're less than ten people strong. These business axioms are good advice for any enterprise, says Ron Conway, investor in over 500 companies, and fellow investor Mike Maples. A lean and mean staff gets the most accomplished, and a low burn rate and ample experimentation are nearly always a calibrator for success. In addition, simultaneou...more

It is important that the startup team have experience - a combination of grey hair and youth is good, says Roizen. VC's have learned that it is not wise to fund a team with only college students, but older people cannot get funding without youth. VC's are looking for a technology to exploit with a team of individuals comprised of young and experienced members.
