Start-Up Advice

  • Always raise one round of capital ahead of schedule when possible. At any given point, you have 6-10 years of financial runway
  • It helps you make deliberate decisions proactively rather than reactively. Create momentum – narratives and product waitlists can help you get ahead.
  • Don’t buy into your own BS – while narratives can bring in money, don’t be pressured into spending the capital outside of the ventures means. Wait until you meet product fit and use the capital for scaling.
  • Understand your market value proposition. don’t grow before you’re ready to grow

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME PODCAST

In game design, you don’t worry about what users want or needs, you focus on how they feel. They don’t use your product, they play it. We must understand human motivation as it relates to enjoyable product experience

Games need good goals: concrete, achievable, and rewarding The design of these goals can help gamify your product fueling your potential for the flow state. Products need rapid and robust controls and platforms, the extreme ease/efficient use of a product can make it feel more like a game.
