Try to Kill Your Startup Before You Start

& Comment

I had the pleasure of sitting on an investor panel with Joe Dwyer, a partner at Founder Equity Fund and good colleague of mine. He made a very interesting comment – he was counseling the startups in the room to “try to kill your startup!”  My initial reaction was that is rather strange advice to make to a room full of aspiring entrepreneurs trying to successfully get their businesses off the ground. But, as Joe went on to explain, he said “if you have done everything you could have done to kill your startup, and were unsuccessful in doing so, then you are truly on to something that is defensible and worth building.”
