Mark Cuban: What Entrepreneurs Need to Know Before Starting a Business


 

Mark Cuban is known for being outspoken and no-nonsense when it comes to business. This week, the billionaire tech entrepreneur, investor and owner of the Dallas Mavericks participated in a question and answer session on popular social news site reddit where he discussed all things business, basketball and, of course, Shark Tank.

When starting a business, Cuban said every entrepreneur needs to know that it’s not so much about having a killer idea as it is about being completely prepared to take a product or service to market. “Everyone has ideas, most don’t do the work required to get the job done,” he wrote.

Another thing aspiring business owners need to keep in mind: Sales are the most important aspect of a small business, Cuban wrote. “No sales, no company.”

Have a great idea? A chance to put your best “face” forward and “ping” a billionaire.

Mark Cuban. Brilliant, entrepreneurial, and in need of something.

For those unfamiliar with Mark Cuban, here’s a brief, emphasizing brief, overview of the last 10+ years of his life. Cuban, who along with Todd Wagner, started Audionet, combining their mutual interest in college basketball and webcasting. This venture grew into what would eventually become Broadcast.com, acquired by Yahoo! in 1999 for $5.9 billion in Yahoo! stock. Currently, Cuban is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, of Landmark Theatres, and Chairman of HDNet.

Brief.

Now Mark Cuban wants to talk to you, and unfortunately, not me.

In a post on his blog, Blog Maverick, which I highly recommend following, he writes the following:

“If you develop Social Games I want to talk to you. Im looking to invest in games, developers and projects

Im looking for consumer and corporate applications. I’m not looking for knockoffs of existing games/apps. I’m also looking for physical products that have integrated social gaming components . My preference for all the above is that they run on or integrate deeply with Facebook and/or Itunes 10/Ping and all the devices they support.”

If I like it , I will respond. If I dont, I wont. I wont sign and NDA.”
