Entrepreneurship is one of the most, if not the most, powerful forces for good in the world. It is entrepreneurs’ passion and pathological optimism that allows them to create the organizations that change the world. Helping them reach for those goals is what gets us so excited!
Note I said “the entrepreneur.” The entrepreneur is our priority, not the startup. Sometimes we help a co-founder realize they should not quit their day job yet, or maybe not be an entrepreneur at all. The startup life isn’t for everyone, or for every stage of life. Assuming otherwise is a great way to ruin wonderful people.
Of course, we do love it when helping the entrepreneur also helps the startup and they take over the world :).
