Startups, Startups & Startups
Over the past few years, with the explosion of startups, thousands of young lads, whom we termed as “entrepreneurs” so that they can feel out of this world by the word go, turned their bedrooms into offices to bring their billion-dollar ideas to life. The vortex of entrepreneurship was to find an investor and get funded — to be funded was like winning the World Cup.
But what happens after you get funded?
You get back to being an employee. You may have brought in people not sharing your dream, not in agreement with your purpose, and soon it’s all about the money. The financial end becomes the main driver of your business.
People are suffering with it. Excellent startups began to tumble because the money-seeking model is endless.
A new way to endeavor is needed. For Gods sake we need to step up to stop the drama of startup/incubation and fool our young generation anymore. This generation is full of potential, we should not show them that it’s easy to have thousands of $ just by bringing an idea. There’s no shortcut.
