I’m spending every night staring at the ceiling wondering when this whole startup world is going to come crashing down on me. It’s starting to invade my waking and non-waking mind. How do I unwind all of this so I can just focus on actually building my startup and not how it will explode?
I’m hearing all of this news about how the startup market is starting to implode and as a Founder I should be freaking out. What’s happening right now and how should I be responding?
What if onboarding customer data was astonishingly easy? All of the inconsistent data coming from your customers is fundamentally inputted by humans. A data onboarding solution allows you to accept files just as they are from all of your customers and deliver on a world-class customer experience.
“I thought I was doing the right thing by raising more and more money, but now I’m stuck with so little equity that my upside is super limited. On top of that, the probability that we’ll ever reach the exit we need to (in my lifetime) to make this worthwhile is a long shot. What are my options here?”
Can I get rich without an exit? There’s a chance that my startup may never be the next Facebook or Google, but does that mean I’m resigned to being the salt mines of startup life always wishing I was them? I want that good life too — so what’s my option?

The fascination makes sense: Gen Zers represent 35% of the global population, $143bn in spending power, and are influencing tech trends and culture at a more rapid pace than ever before. Meagan Loyst of Lerer Hippeau surveyed the group on their likes, dislikes, feelings, and predictions — and here’s what she found.
t is clearly a job seekers market right now, which affords them the opportunity to take the best of competing offers, even if they have already accepted a previous offer, and “ghost” their new employer by never showing up on their first day, which is happening in record numbers and is not a cool move, at all So, to save you all the tedious effort of having to go back and restart your recruiting efforts after making bad offers or hires, it is important you get it right in the first place.
I’m so busy being heads down trying to build my startup that I don’t even know what success would look and feel like. When a Founder is finally successful, where does that feeling of accomplishment come from, and do we even notice when it happens?
Many of the startup investors I know are disappointed that so few of the startup ideas they see are really innovative or disruptive.
