When it comes to successfully making a pitch, you need to establish your own success mindset – and that involves not letting rejection affect you more than it should. Learn how to spot the characteristics of a founder: grit, tenacity, and of course the ability to tell a good story, which is what the successful pitch is all about. Joanne Chen, a venture capitalist at foundation capital in Silicon Valley, talks about this in a discussion of her journey, and how her company is transitioning from being one of Netflix’s early investors to getting a head start in the future of artificial technology.

Joanne Chen’s passion for technology developed very early. Her parents taught her how to program: her dad, who was a mathematician, and her mom who specialized in computer science. By the time Joanne was nine, she turned that into a business, making her first webpage for a client. This glimmer of entrepreneurial ability soon sparked as she began her career as an engineer at Cisco Systems and then later at a mobile gaming company. She spent many years working at Wall Street at Jefferies & Co. She had also been an angel investor for two years, and now works with passionate entrepreneurs who want to disrupt businesses by leveraging data assets.
