During LeWeb’13, when asked what is his advice to aspiring entrepreneurs Guy Kawasaki said:
The most important thing that an entrepreneur can do is to build a working prototype as opposed to making a powerpoint pitch, excel projection, or a word business plan.
He added that the most powerful presentation that you can make to a potential investor is a working prototype that is already being consumed or being subscribed i.e. demo with sign ups.

What is a H.I.P.?
High Impact Picture (HIP) is an effort by SK to deliver content in the simplest form possible. Everyone knows that people love inforgraphics. It’s my view that people’s attention span is too short for inforgraphics. We need a shorter way to deliver the same information — but still be as informative and as entertaining. So, this is the world’s best ideas — bite sized for you by SK.
