You may have read my earlier post entitled Doing it Right the First Time: The 15 Most Common, but Avoidable, Mistakes Made by High Growth Start-ups. I wanted to add some additional articles/posts I’ve read since then that add some flavor to my post. Check out the following:
- When to Fire Your Co-Founders, by Simeon Simeonov (CEO at FastIgnite and former partner at Polaris Ventures);
- What Constitutes a Start-up Mistake, by Simeon Simeonov;
- The 18 Mistakes that Kill Start-ups, by Paul Graham – I guess I was 3 short on my list; and
- How to Pick a Co-Founder, by Naval Ravikant.
Hope you enjoy these articles/posts and the additional info and perspective they add to this topic.
