Four TV Series Every Entrepreneur Should Watch | BGI Tips

While still trying to figure out this global pandemic situation, I have been reflecting more on how I got into startups and Venture Capital. The more I thought about it the more I realized how much I was influenced by Television. Here are some shows/movies that taught me 1 or 2 things about entrepreneurship:

1. Silicon Valley

The series is a parody of Silicon Valley culture and focuses on a naive programmer who founds a startup company, and chronicles his struggles trying to maintain his company while facing competition from larger entities. This show comedically tackles everything from Pitching, to Intellectual Property to Hiring. It has everything.
