The following is phrase is used by Apollo -13 moon crew. They have reported a major technical problem. This is the same story of startups.
Young Guns in line 🙂
- Have seen and spoken to IIM/IIT other top cream college/School graduates.
- The experiences range from “Zero years” to “ten years”
- They are in CXO roles and key roles.
- One such example is Oye rooms co-founder ( Ritesh Agarwal)
- Another example is “Rahul Yadav” (Ex-CEO of Housing.com). He is most controversial CEO of the times.
No Vision and Mission
- People are mixing various roles (CXO, Developer, Investor). No man/woman can have multiple roles.
- Every firm wants CXO, who can code, test, fund, market, and many things. People don’t realize development guys can’t be in co-founder team.
- Foundation of the development team is a must. Unless you have the right mix of all ingredients you can not have a right taste of food or pizza.
- There is no roadmap. People are concentrating on either “marketing side” or “getting product out”
- Just because there is an idea, you could not plunge into water
- People want all in one guy or girl’s (may be kindergarten ) to do everything.
- People and firms to get maturity in dealing market and financial condition.
- Everyone is trying to become Amazon, Flipkart, Google. Every firm wants to imitate what others are doing.
- Plethora of e-commerce firms produced in the market. Unless there is a strategy, you can not succeed.
