TweakYourBiz TV Talks With Entrepreneur, Investor And Philanthropist Bill Liao
I had the pleasure recently of interviewing Bill Liao, an Australian entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist based in Ireland. Bill is co-founder of Coderdojo, co-founder of Xing.com, founder of WeForest.org and venture partner with SOS Ventures (along with our newest Irish Dragon, Sean O’Sullivan, who talked with us on TYB in March)
Bill is a perfect marriage of tech savvy and business, where he can write an iPad app, mentor a start-up or explore his philanthropic flare.
- Here is the link to the video of Bill Liao advising Angel Investors on how to look after start-ups. Well worth a watch.
- Recently Bill was the keynote speaker at the amazing #dotconf event, held at the National College of Ireland.
- And he will be taking part in the packed World Social Media Day event at The Rubicon Centre in Cork on June 30th. You can connect with Bill at @liaonet
Bill talks business, bikinis and code
I caught up with Bill to talk business, bikinis and code and as for angel investors, Liao’s five nuggets of advice when they engage with entrepreneurs are:
- not to be too greedy
- find other mentors
- demand measures
- make their story crisp
- find coders
