Lessons for Startups

Startup illustrationIn this first post, I will expose my point of view about what startups have to do in order to succeed. This thema is not new and Paul Graham just wrote an essay about this.

I will use it for my reflexion, without shame and while Guy Kawasaki describes Chris Anderson as a writer’s writer relatively to his book, The Long Tail, I think I can be a blogger’s blogger for my first post. It will give myself confidence and there is no problem with being the second of someone.

 For Paul Graham, Startups should follow 8 basic rules.

  1. Release Early
  2. Keep Pumping out features
  3. Make Users Happy

  6. There is always Room
  7. Don’t Get Your Hopes Up
  8. Speed, not Money
