Alejandro Cremades is a Spanish author and entrepreneur based out of New York. Originally from Switzerland, he relocated to the United States upon obtaining his law degree at just the age of 22. Since then he has grown strong business connections, raised funds, and authored ‘The Art of Startup Fundraising.’ Here is a look at some of the best Alejandro Cremades quotes to remember.
“The best entrepreneurs are not the best visionaries. The greatest entrepreneurs are incredible salespeople. They know how to tell an amazing story that will convince talent and investors to join in on the journey.”
“One of the best ways to attract capital is to outperform the competition.”
“Most startups eventually pivot to adjust to what the market is telling them.”
“Learning to embrace and savor rejection is one of the best things that entrepreneurs can do. Launching a startup is the time to find your ever-optimistic inner child again.”
“If you want to glide toward money, you have to make sure your message is clear as a bell, and you need to ensure that you have a unified team capable of communicating it.”

“Ideas are meaningless without a masterful execution.”
“Don’t expect investors to be throwing millions on the table for you to go off and buy a bigger house, get a new car, party half the week away, and generally upgrade your lifestyle.”
“Business success requires business preparation. You don’t have to be a master tactician, but you do need to have a plan in place. This plan will act as a foundation for everything you want to achieve.”
“Business is still more often about whom you know, not what you know.”
