Startups: Bands for Hackers - Peter Sobot

Startups: Bands for Hackers - Peter Sobot: "Like many bands, many startups begin in parents’ garages - serious business in a non-serious atmosphere. Founders (or band members) spend every waking moment together, working hard to perfect their craft and their endeavour. While bands work to perfect their lyrics, melodies and rhythms, startups work to perfect their pitch, product and business plan. Instead of fans, startups get users; instead of trying to impress the A&R rep that may show up to a performance, startups try to impress the investors in the audience on demo day. For bands, this demo is a rough CD - for startups, it’s their first product. Both are MVPs."
