Abstract: want to mix good venture capital circles, summed up is 3 points: character, professional and personality. Good character is the foundation of all things, a strong professional degree is you removed from the lakes "weapons", and unique personality is to let other people remember your "Nirvana".
I believe that for many people, operating their own contacts circle is to achieve a simple goal: to become the most professional and top "pimp". Because when you become connected a circle (commonly known as "pimp"), all resources will be in your hands, and you also have the resources to connect and maximize the value of the "magic".
According to my
in venture capital circles me.but experience, is 3 words: "the most exquisite pimp mixed circle". However, the circle is not so easy to see, the depth of the water inside is absolutely unimaginable. Because I got reason of learning at home and abroad and work in many circles: from American universities, alumni associations circle circle, circle to the Silicon Valley and Standford Berkeley programmers students circle, to venture capital, the domestic media circles. I think so many circle mixed down or pulled out some mixed circle and business contacts in the doorway, I will share my experience:
