Since 2014, a US TVShow named Silicon Valley is on air on HBO.
This TVShow focuses on six young men who found a startup in the Silicon Valley. The story is not completely sarcastic since several subjects are main topics in the history of a company.
So let’s have a look on what’s real in episode 101.
The guy doesn’t know exactly what he is building
Really ! That happens more often than you could believe it and that’s why several team spend a lot of time to point out the purpose of their company even if they master a specific technology. For the record, that was the case with the Snapchat team.
Don’t forget that you have to build something people want and not something that just make you feel happy : you have to take every opportunity to speak about your product.
Panic happens… a lot !
Being the CEO of a startup means you have to take several decisions all the time. And quickly.
Some of them are easy and funny to take. Some of them are really hard and you know that your life and the life of your company could change in a very different way depending on your choice.
The good piece of news is that whatever you decide, you will survive so just choose something !
