10 Mistakes That Start-Up Entrepreneurs Make
September 7, 2010
As a partner in a Boston based Venture Capital firm that invests growth capital in expansion stage companies, I was reading last week’s WSJ when I came across an article that I wanted to share with founders, CEOs and the management teams of early and expansion stage software companies that is relevant to the challenges they face and the decisions they make every day.
As an operational software executive for over 25 years, I made plenty of good decisions and I also made mistakes, which is how I learned to make better decisions through the pain they caused. But one philosophy I always had was to try and learn from other people’s mistakes, so I did not have to make them myself.
The article is titled “10 Mistakes That Start-Up Entrepreneurs Make“, and you can read about it here.
My advice to you is to read it and file it away where you can find it again. Then pull it out to review every now and then to refresh yourself… it is always easier to learn from other people’s mistakes then your own.
All the best!
