Episode Info: Today we are talking to Sergei & Vadim Revzin, identical twins that also have a podcast together, called The Mentors. They are doing a lot of cool things and you’ll hear how  Vadim is teaching as NYU and how he hacked his way into becoming a professor there, without going through the usual process of slugging through a masters degree. We also talk about how Sergei runs a venture capital fund at NYU and helps businesses with investing and start up mentoring.  They shine a lot of light on brand new startups and how people should approach this issue, what to have in place before you start creating a partnership and key components to look for to determine whether you have a sustainable idea.  After you’re done, be sure to check out our shows with Abdo Riani on unique strategies for bootstrapping new business ideas and Brad Spencer as we discuss a three step process to maximize results with any project. “Owning private property and being an owner of your own destiny is human nature.” - Sergei Revzin “In America, even though there’s still a lot of rules and regulations you have to follow, it’s actually relatively easy to start a business.
