How to build a bulletproof startup?

Ok, first if you don’t want to read the corresponding article [by Michael V. Copeland and Om Malik], download this PDF directly and read it – How to build a bulletproof startup?

In their own words;

There’s never been a better time to start your own company. New technologies are creating new business opportunities on the Internet, on mobile phones, in consumer products, and in information services. At the same time, many of these technologies have radically reduced the costs associated with launching a new venture. In the late 1990s, a typical VC-funded startup needed roughly $10 million to amass the infrastructure and staff required to carry the company from its first business plan to its first product launch. Today that cost has been reduced to just $4 million–and in many cases way, way less. The barriers to entry have never been lower.

At the time of writing this article, I am studying through the PDF and it is very illustrative, grahical, concise, figurative and easy to go through.

Here is a back-up of the

from my server otherwise the above link should just do fine.

  1. I read the original article in Business 2.0. It's a great article. Even better, I disagree with some of what they say which makes me feel good I can actually... you know... think for myself!

    I think a lot of their estimates for cash are on the extreme end; I fail to see why you need that much money for some stages whereas for others it makes perfect sense.

  3. Well, I would rather consider figures to be figurative and would always try to put my own mathematics. However, I think that too depend on the type of your products; are they single verticals? or a horizontal with multiple verticals?, _et al_.

  5. what great timing on your post!

    I'm in the midst of researching starting my own business! I've picked up some in depth books (about 800 pages), but this little article is a great cliff notes version and you donǃÙt get lost in thick business terminology.

    Thanks for sharing dude!
