Main topic: money
- Should your startup get funding?
Joel Gascoigne, founder of Buffer: “Easy to sell away your ownership and control without realizing what it will mean. The industry seems to normalize and make people feel like it's a given that they can't grow with their company.”
John O’Nolan, founder of Ghost: “This is so important. I had the exact same experience in a startup accelerator. All these wealthy smart people telling me that there was no way to succeed without taking capital. They are VERY good at convincing people of that”
- “Growing fast and health are nearly mutually exclusive”
Pros to funding: it’d be nice to move faster.
Cons to funding: you lose control, your forced to move faster than you might like (or need to).
