No. 1 mistake: Failure to recruit the best people to join their team
Vator’s community is the home to entrepreneurs who embrace their passion and follow their dreams. Our newly-designed profiles allow members to express themselves by sharing their interests, lessons learned, as well as bits and pieces of their roller-coaster journey.

Frustrating: The fear of investors, prospective employees & partners. They should not be so afraid. The loss of time with someone who does not make a move.
Rewarding: the buzz and the growth. It feels like it matters. "Into the great wide open...the sky is the limit"
Failure to recruit the best people to join their team and board. It's all team, baby.
1) Solid strategy
2) Good team
3) Correct decision on how to allocate time
