These days, everyone seems to have forgotten the importance of building something that actual people want and will use. Now it’s scale up, uberize, pivot and re-pivot… and if all else fails, get aqui-hired. The typical startup’s biggest press hit is about which A-List investor has dropped money into it.
It’s easier than ever to find someone to give you money but harder than ever to cut through the noise and create something important that solves a real problem. There isn’t an app that can fix this. Getting funded is not a “growth” strategy.
