“Ashton Kutcher is an actor and producer and an investor in companies like Spotify, Airbnb, Foursquare, and Uber through the A-Grade VC fund he co-founded,” Haden writes. “And he’s also playing Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic, ‘JOBS.'”

Haden writes, “I talked to Kutcher about the thrill (and the risk) of portraying an iconic, often-beloved figure, what he learned about entrepreneurship from playing Steve Jobs, and some of the qualities every entrepreneur needs to be successful. Spoiler alert (always wanted to say that): He’s really smart.”
