Entrepreneurship and the Startup Curve

Here’s a little entrepreneurship advice from Fred Wilson, the guy who funds startups that fit into the silicon alley mold. This advice rings true more so for web and social startups, but that starting your own company is like a roller-coaster — that’s true for everyone.

“The wearing off phase is scary. The trough of sorrow is horrible. The crash of ineptitude is a near death experience. But without all of them, you can’t get feedback, you can’t learn what is just hype, and what is reality.”

“So to all those entrepreneurs whittling away in their offices trying to find out when to release their product to the market, I say “get on with it”. You are going to have to go on the roller coaster ride at some point. Might as well start now.”
