It turned out to be a meeting with three people who were kind enough to buy me breakfast at the Arabella Sheraton. They had a very interesting story to tell about their goals and their members.
They asked me to tell my story. I think they were expecting a 5 min elevator pitch about one idea. When people ask me what I do I have a few simple answers because most people don’t really want to know.
I usually respond with one of the following:
- “Computer Geek”
- “Director of a few IT companies”
The trouble is that if somebody asks me this question and is really interested in the answer it’s not a quick 5min story.
The Endeavor team seem very motivated, passionate and knowledgeable, which is a rare combination.
It’s a 9 month selection process with 6+ interviews to become an Endeavor entrepreneur, but you get to meet some very interesting people along the way.
The whole interview angle makes me a bit nervous for a lame reason. You see I have this stupid little score card in the back of my mind for interviews.. usually bursaries or jobs. I’m sitting on 9/9. I’ve never been to an interview where I did not get the job, but I guess I can risk my perfect track record (-:
I’ll work on my elevator pitch.. or maybe I should just print my homepage URL on a card and tell people to go check out the details if they are really interested.
