Unruly Media, Inc.
I want to invent something cool.
Dropbox, Pinterest, YouTube
What's rewarding? Building stuff. Seeing stuff take off. Seeing people progress. Seeing culture emerge in the company. What's frustrating? People saying no. Doing the donkeywork yourself.
Backing ideas not people. It's much easier to change the product than the team.
Make sure the founding team is well-balanced.
Get insanely great people on board as fast as you can.
Do stuff faster! Faster is always better.
