hmm i some how worry about Investors, because investors keep on investing by seeing some analytics that this is gonna be big, rule the world, big bang theory etc etc.. at the end there is no profit and with out fuel company wont run, so company see or check for another fuel donor to run for some time.. i want to know the actual business analytics, how much are they earning per transaction, how much they are burning money on marketing.. finally at the end how much margin profit a branch is getting in a day / week / month.. etc etc..
Startups need to work on sustainable businesses not on businesses that require money time to time to run the shop.. In my area a guy who has a small food centre earns min 1000/- per day apart from all expenses, so per month 30k is his profit... a small on road food point... he takes min money from money lenders, pay them daily interest or some thing and still earns profit... why cant companies concentrate on quality of the product rather than expanding the product range with out any deep ground experience as they received crores of rupees just like giving a lolipop to a kid.
Most start ups failed here, thats some good news, but what about the investors money, what about the interest, what about so called culture, what about so called perks, food, AC, stock options etc etc...
I seriously ask what is your product? how it helps to solve the problem? how much money you need? how much you pay per month ? Sit and work, thats it.. no need of investing in posh offices, no need of hiring IIT kids, no need of giving perks, or saying corporate culture, huge parties etc etc.. Just sit and work on the product..
Keep expenses as low as possible then you can see profit... if you are a tortoise be a tortoise dont act like a rabbit.. because a ceo kid just closes the shop and what about hundreds of employees, what about their families, what about if few ceo kids close few shops and thousands of employees left on road, then what you are trying to show to next generation entrepreneurs?
