StartUp Movies - Start Up Reality? Your Take?
An associate named Marko made a post here. Marko is a veteran startUp guy. He spent 6-7 years at his first startUp practically from day one.
He grew with the company, through it’s first couple of years and 70 angel investors who financed millions of startUp dollars. He went through the “You can’t do that!” phase.
He went through the first acquisition offer for $7,000,000 that the company turned down, to instead do a deal with the first $2,000,000 venture capitalist. He was there when the next venture capitalist poured in $5-$6 million more.
He was there when the founder got lynched by the venture capitalist. And then of course he did the best he could under a new regime. Then he departed. Onwards and upwards.
He was a great trooper. Did and excellent job under grueling conditions. He got paid pretty well, and his income probably tripled, but he never really got what he expected, nor deserved. Nobody really did.
So this is the way he remembers it.
If you’ve been a part of a start up or you’re a part of one now what movies make up your startUp world? Check in and tell everyone else. It was fun stopping for a moment and looking at Marko’s view. It would be great to see others.
