Paul Graham, the founder of Y Combinator wrote: “In a startup, things seem great one moment and hopeless the next. And by next, I mean a couple hours later.” Startups are an emotional roller-coaster. Think about it. Your whole team is two to three people. Your office is your living room. Every new customer is a amazing success. Every lost customer a huge tragedy. In between the fist day of a startup and success there are numerous versions of the product itself. The numerous versions of the product – until the startup realizes why it exists.
Despite the heart-wrenching stories of unsuccessful startups, we all believe that anyone, with enough perseverance can build the next Facebook. This is the land to do it. God bless America, with more startups. You will be seeing more and more of your friends and coworkers leaving on this journey. Is it worth it? You tell me.
