back to the futureA guy wanted to pitch me his idea. He was going to prepare and send what I presume to be a business plan. This is what I wrote back, I’ll probably reuse this in the future:

Do not sent me a business plan. Good ideas are simple and make sense right away (or not).

You can send me one paragraph about the idea – problem & solution, two lines about the market (don’t tell me how big the internet is… I already know that) if you have some thoughts about revenues write it in a line. don’t tell me what your revenue will be in 3 years unless you have invented a time machine. if you don’t know something, write: “I don’t know”.

If you succeeded, great! send it over.

if not, go back to the beginning of the message.
