“… as in all matters of the heart, don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs, on picking co-founders
Co-founders are the biggest failure mode for startups.
“If you are facing in the right direction, keep walking.” – Buddha, on focusing your time in a startup
Markets are relatively efficient, so your first product is probably wrong.
If there’s demand, we’ll turn this into a slidecast.
