  • orrrick Rick Orr, Founder at Tabbedout Great deck and love the Evan analogy that web = owning an island vs. mobile = renting land. This is very true and all the more reason to focus on simplicity and customer delight - core canons for today's entrepreneur although made more difficult given the low costs of experimentation for all the reasons you identify here. Equal parts fun and terrifying. 1 year ago

  • rajivekjain Rajive Jain, Recruitment Manager at 314e Corporation I agree with Bojan's observations. Much has changed. But also, to scale one does need money - can't exactly have a nationwide effort without hiring more people, putting butts in plane seats to get the word out etc. Social media penetration takes time too.... right ? 1 year ago

  • bojanbabic Bojan Babic at Groupon Considering it from another angle, almost every ingredient you need in order to start a startup is there and you do not have to reinvent the wheel. If you need payment system you do not have to write your own. Business models are commodity. Technology is much cheaper. In cost analysis for most of early stage startups, the price of renting flat for team is one of biggest costs.
    With all this in mind, unless startups are going for exceptional outcomes they do not need VC capital and can build lifestyle business from their own pockets and that is unprecedented.
