Startup Career Path, Startups Similar to Auto Racing
by Max Sobol on October 22, 2009
I wanted to point out a couple of interesting articles today.
Chris Dixon talks about the ideal startup career path over on his blog. I agree completely and have been a recent fan of his thoughts and ideas. Further, he discusses and quotes a point that Aaron Cohen makes that “…you shouldn’t think of joining a start-up as just joining a company. You should think of it as joining the start-up career path.”
Will Herman via VentureBeat talks about how auto racing and start-ups aren’t that different. Admittedly, I am not that much of a fan of auto racing but I can appreciate the correlation and think that his points are absolutely valuable. ”It’s often easy to get caught with your head down, focused on near-term problems and opportunities while ignoring the big picture and where the new enterprise should be headed.”
