A classic Apertif first serve in Gaspare Campari’s bar, Caffè Campari in the 1860’s. Very easy to make, low alcohol level and just tastes great on a hot summer day.

Midsummer in Estonia is special. This year, we went with friends to Saaremaa—the biggest Estonian island—and had a party in the woods.
In my experience, less than you think. Startups tend to look in all the wrong directions to establish how much capital they need to take in, instead of actually looking at what they need in order to accomplish a clearly defined mission, which is what really matters.
In this post, I want to touch upon some of the main fallacies I experience when talking to startups and give you a simple process to establish what you actually need and what would be best to have and how to get closer to the latter.
This is all completely irrelevant to efficiently reaching the goals you’ve set to make your business successful. Even worse, I quite often experience founders saying things along the lines of:
Let’s set our goal a bit higher than what we actually need, that way, if we don’t raise the full amount, we’ll still be okay.
This is an understandable logic, but completely misguided nonetheless. If you come to an intelligent investor with bloated budgets, she will see straight through it, interpreting it as either–in the best case–incompetence, and–in the worst–as you trying to scam out money of your investors.

I always ask people who say they don’t “get” what a blockchain is, whether or not they really “get” the internet. I first heard this question being asked to an audience at a WIRED MONEY talk in Berlin by the CEO and Founder of Funderbeam, Kaidi Ruusalepp.
Typically, the majority of people who understand the internet, also understand the concept of a blockchain, and vice versa — which means, if you don’t understand one, you probably don’t understand the other.
