10 Characteristics of Great Companies and Great Investors

As we start to dive into our Entrepreneurship course, exploring new ventures, I thought these were a couple of great lists for people to review as they think about new ideas or new places to invest money.

As one of the leading voices in technology and venture capital, Fred's blog (A VC) is a great daily read. Not only does he give great insight into various aspects of the business, but he encourages complete transparency through the comments and on-going discussions. It's an excellent example of realizing that there are 1000s of great ideas out there if you're willing to listen and be open-minded. He also acknowledges that he's been mentored by some of the greats before him, and he encourages giving back to newcomers to the industry.
