Terri Krivosha Featured on WCCO's Jordana Green Show Regarding Founding a Startup

January 27, 2015

Terri Krivosha was interviewed on WCCO Radio's Jordana Green Show on January 27, 2015. In the interview, Jordana asks Terri to speak to listeners who have declared 2015 as the year to finally follow that pipe dream of owning their own business. Jordana references Terri's book, Founding a Startup, as a roadmap for entrepreneurs and asks Terri where entrepreneurs should start.

During the conversation, Jordana asks what the makings are for a successful startup, and Terri responds "What's most important is not the idea, but the team that will help execute on the idea. Ideas change and people invest in teams. So, it's important to find a mentor…who can give you good advice about how to make this work." When putting together a team, Terri suggests "You need to figure out what your strengths are, and you need to find others who complement those strengths... You need to find people that have skills that you don't that will help you take that idea and turn it on its head because it will, in all likelihood, change."

To listen to the interview, go to: WCCO Radio, The Jordana Green Show.
