  • If you were asked who would be most likely to discover new drug treatments for the 7000 rare diseases that affect 25 million Americans, you would probably say the pharmaceutical industry. That’s what pharmaceutical companies do, right?   Well – you would be wrong. At the rate the pharmaceutical industry is discovering new rare disease drugs today, it would take hundreds or even thousands of years to get treatments for the rare diseases we already know about, let alone the ones we have not yet discovered.

    30. 30. Lessons Learned from Building Two StartupsIt’s not easy to start a company but it’s worth it!Only work on ideas and projects that are important to you.It’s more fun to run a company without venture capitalist (VC) backing.Going virtual can dramatically improve your quality of life.It’s difficult to get customers. Start marketing now.Big is not necessarily better. Simple products can transform entire industries.Select co-founders who share a common vision but have different skillsets.
