Success Paths for Entrepreneurs, VCs and Merchant Bankers

G. Steven Burrill, Burrill & Company

As an entrepreneur, Burrill says, it is essential to constantly challenge backhand knowledge, differentiate information from insight, and have a healthy aggressive attitude towards trying to build something of value. A VC chooses companies based on where the market place will be in the future and not where it is today. In merchant banking business, it is not about how many things one gets started, but how many things one completes, he notes.
