Two zinger quotes

Ran across these two quotes today that brought a smile:

By the time a big company gets the committee to organize the subcommittee to pick a meeting date, your startup could have made 20 decisions, reversed five of them and implemented the fifteen that worked.” — Steve Blank, Speed and Tempo

the running joke [on raising VC] is that as a first-timer, if you don’t have a prototype don’t bother, then if you don’t have traction, don’t bother, then if you don’t have revenue don’t bother, and once you do have revenue – why bother? 🙂” — adityac, in comments of my last post

  • how frustratingly true that last quote.
