Every once in a long while, I read a tremendous post about startups.
Paul Graham‘s recent essay “The hardest lessons for startups to learn” is one such post. It’s from a recent Startup School talk. I can personally vouch for so many of these counterintuitive lessons. Another great essay in his series is “How to fund a startup” – I often pass this one along to founders – it’s thorough and simple to understand.
I have followed Paul’s Y-Combinator project with great interest (and envy, man that sounds like fun) for a while now.
