Random Thoughts: On other side of building a startup

I have been a big time critic, enjoyed Twitter for bashing products & people running startups because of my own bias.

My reason of anger were:

  1. You should not have raised.
  2. VC’s picked wrong founders.
  3. Founders picked wrong VC’s.
  4. Startup employees are overpaid.
  5. Founders waste more money on building product than office space.
  6. Media has glorified this whole startup thing.

But, if you think through deeply every change/revolution went through its up and down. The startup revolution/movement is one of it. Generalizing everyone and everything being bad/rotten will do no good.

Providing a constructive criticism helps not being a keyboard worrier with opinions.

If you don’t belive me, google and read story about various founders.

  1. Leaving high paid jobs to pursue build something new for society.
  2. Husband/Wife managing kids, startups & employees so many kids together to foster technology to the world.
  3. Rejected in US, moving back working hard building billion $$ and providing employment to 1000+ people and opening up employment opportunities in the chain.

There are many more others…

So a humble advice, stop being prick. Help the ecosystem, empower and foster with your piece of help. [This applies to me as well]

If you thought writing is only for the loners and the drinkers, think again. If you thought it is too time-consuming to type in sentences after sentences, correct the typos and then edit it all over again, think again. And before you think I am talking about writing copy for your homepage or for that print ad that you are putting thousands of dollars into, let me correct you. I am talking about writing as a means of putting down your philosophies, objectives and thoughts – on your personal blog, on your corporate blog, external blogs (like Pluggd.In), internal memos and newsletters, best practices PDF and the like.
