Entrepreneur First is a program that operates under the theory that if you take a bunch of talented individuals, offer them mentoring and guidance and a small stipend to live off of, they will end up creating brilliant businesses. It appears that their theory is working quite well.
Naturally, I wanted in. Entrepreneur First has quite a lengthy application process. The first step is a questionnaire. Fortunately, they liked my questionnaire enough that I was able to move onto the next stage. For the next step, I was asked to submit a video answering the following questions:
- Tell us a bit more about the most impressive technical thing you’ve built. Why do you think it’s impressive?
- Tell us about a time when you’ve been relentless to achieve something you wanted. How did you do this?
- What do you think you would like to work on at EF? What skills do you have to build this?
I was very happy with my video, which I created quite easily, just using iMovie for iPhone. Check it out below!
Sadly I wasn’t selected to proceed to the next round of the application process but I understand- I don’t have any entrepreneurial experience; not yet at least!
But I did enjoy learning about EF and creating this video and I think it really showcases my tenacity when it comes to making things happen.
