“There aren’t crazy ideas, I think some of the best products in the world are sometimes seen as being crazy. Best products I’ve seen are half-baked and sometimes ill-prepared to paint a vision. Sometimes these entrepreneurs don’t realize the amount of work needed to create the idea.”
Senior, Entrepreneurship & Marketing Double Major and president of the Sacramento Association of Collegiate Entrepreneurs
