Awesome Jonathon Perrelli: Fools Are A Necessary Part Of The Economy
February 9, 2012 Leave a comment
Here is an awesome inspirational message by Jonathon Perrelli with Fortify.vc to those who are as fool as me, currently struggling to find employment, and have at least 10% entrepreneurial DNA. Given our current economy and unemployment rate, I don’t think I need to remind you that most of the existing successful companies including Google, Microsoft, and GE launched their ventures during the poor economy. So, his message below is SIMPLEMENTE PERFCTO!
Message to Fools:
“If you have a day job, and you love it, shout hooray! If you woke up and realized that you are being pimped by an evil corporation and not being treated fairly, or you are bored out of your mind, or too smart to be locked down, get up and grab your red stapler and walk the F out the door. Fools are a necessary part of the economy and I too have been a fool more than once in my career, so I too “get” that it is quite difficult to leave the day job, etc. So either explore your business as a hobby (but not for too long) or live vicariously through your Founder and Farmer friends. Turn your dream into an innovative product or service. Be bold, but be careful. Know your personal financial situation and speak with others who have made the jump from Fool to Founder, prior to grabbing your stapler” Jonathon Perrelli with Fortify.vc.

Here is the translation of his blog post by Hollywood 🙂
With the help of $100,000 from Mayor Vincent Gray, Jonathon and a bunch of his portfolio companies recently moved their offices to K Street in Washington, DC to launch his Tech startup accelerator – similar concept as Silicon Valley’s Y Combinator, but on steroid.
