What if I told you 75 percent of venture-backed startups fail? Would you still launch it?
It’s easy to romanticize with the idea of becoming a founder. There are plenty of stories in the media highlighting the lifestyle of successful entrepreneurs, Elon Musk, Reid Hoffman, Mark Zuckerberg, among others. There is nothing wrong with this, a little bit of inspiration goes a long way. I just wish there were as many stories of their first days as founders.
Launching a startup can be one of the most rewarding and life-changing experiences, but it's also one of the most challenging ones! The intensity of launching, operating and scaling a startup is not for everyone.
The good news is there are plenty of resources out there to help you throughout your journey and we hope to bring those to you through this series.
