假如穆斯克、贝佐斯等最成功的创业者上创业真人秀,下场会是这样的

Joshua Brown 2015年03月18日

假如近代史上最成功的一些企业家,在创业之初向真人秀节目《创智赢家》的评委们推介自身项目,会得到怎样的答复?

    在天使投资领域,看准哪个项目能成功并非易事。这在很大程度上是个机遇问题。假如近代最成功的一些企业家,在创业之初向《创智赢家》(Shark Tank)的评委们推介自身项目,会得到怎样的答复?我们猜想会出现以下对话。

    In the world of startup funding, spotting a winner is no simple task. Much of it comes down to chance. How would the judges of ABC’s Shark Tank respond to pitches from some of the most successful entrepreneurs in recent history when they were just starting out? Here’s how we imagine the conversations might have gone.

    埃隆•穆斯克(特斯拉创始人)

    我叫埃隆•穆斯克,我将彻底改变美国乃至全球汽车行业。我的特斯拉汽车将完全由电池驱动,完全不使用化石燃料,从而实现零排放。我希望以50亿美元的价格,转让公司20%的股份。

    戴蒙德•约翰:市面上已经有了雪佛兰Volt和丰田普锐斯等混合动力车,而且这类车的目标客户群很小,对吧?

    是的,但我的电动车将与众不同。

    戴蒙德•约翰:有何不同?

    其售价将近10万美元,而且你将无法从汽车经销商那里买到。

    戴蒙德•约翰:我没听错吧?

    没错。而且此车需要在特殊的“加油站”进行充电,我需要从各位这里筹钱,在全美建造此类充电站。

    凯文•奥利里:你的车靠什么驱动?

    靠一种特殊的电池,目前还没有什么厂家大规模生产这种电池。我还得请各位资助我一些钱来生产这种电池。不过,最初几年,我们最多卖出约3万辆车,所以电池生产应该不成问题。

    戴蒙德•约翰:我觉得你是在开玩笑。

    我是认真的。我闲暇时还建造宇宙飞船。

    凯文•奥利里:这听着就不靠谱。我没兴趣。

    Elon Musk

    My name is Elon Musk and I’m about to revolutionize the auto industry, first in the United States and then all over the world. My Tesla cars will drive entirely powered by batteries, with zero emissions or fossil fuels. I’m seeking $5 billion for 20% of my company.

    Daymond John: We already have the Chevy Volt and the Toyota Prius on the road and the audience for this type of car is pretty small, right?

    Yes, but my electric car will be different.

    Daymond John: How?

    It will cost almost $100,000 and there will be no dealerships where you can purchase them.

    Daymond John: Come again?

    That’s right. And you’ll need to refuel them at special filling stations that I will also need funds from you to build, all over America.

    Kevin O’Leary: But what powers the car?

    Well, it’s a special kind of battery that no one really makes a lot of yet. I’m also going to need some cash from you to make those too. But we’re only going to sell around 30,000 cars, tops, during the first few years, so that shouldn’t be a problem.

    Daymond John: I feel like you’re playing a joke here.

    I’m totally serious. I also build spaceships in my spare time.

    Kevin O’Leary: This sounds insane. I’m out.
