I recently ran across a drawing depicting the early life of a startup. The image was part of a presentation by Sarah Prevette on Your first startup.
Having lived through this exact cycle for the last two years I’m amazed at how succinct the image is in capturing the turmoil of a startup. I ran across the image on Facebook through my good friend Jason Della Rocca and I started digging through Sarah’s blog. Some truly great information there.
After slugging it out for the last two years, I’m convinced a big part of our early success at Bioware was a complete lack of perspective on how many things could go wrong.
