Other people talk about startups and entrepreneurship

You don’t need to look far to find examples of how dysfunctional the Silicon Valley/San Francisco startup culture is. It seems to exist in a worldview bubble, even if it might not be an economic one.

However, since I actually work for a startup (London-based though) I’m going to let others do the talking and hole-poking.



If you read venture capitalists' blogs, you'll find many are full of self-aggrandizements… and full of flattery, too. 

Subtly, these VCs position themselves as people uniquely skilled to inform, groom, and spot future success (despite the reality of the VC industry success rate). With vague but continual pronouncements, they position themselves as special. 

Startup Narcissism by (6596 words).






hello welcome to startup

here are your poorly defined goals

these are your arbitrary deadlines

this is your inexperienced boss

have fun!
