  9. 9. LEADING TO… • Startup “scene” divided forces with a own-clutter • Lack of synergies and cooperative spirit • No one really progresses on competence gap • Too many CEOs / app focus / introversy • Expectations for easy funding / Premature scaling • Parity offerings / lack of novelty • Country needs a ‘Jobs Act’, rather than startup events!
