Business is hard, tech entrepreneur Mitch Kapor said. And startups? Really hard.
But he's been doing this for a while, and had plenty of advice for the NewMe Accelerator participants, whose attempt to break into the tech business are documented in "Black in America: The New Promised Land – Silicon Valley." The documentary airs at 8 p.m., 11 p.m., and 2 a.m. ET on February 11 and February 12 on CNN.
Ron Conway, one of the top angel investors in Silicon Valley, offered his perspective on what he looks for in a company, too.
Tristan Walker, who heads up business development at Foursquare, had some wise words, too: "Number one, we just all need to hustle."
