Takeaways from Startup School

This is an excellent summary of the main takeaways from each speaker at the recent Startup School event at Stanford. Thanks, Philip Crissman! And thanks, Dharmesh, for helping offset some of Philip’s costs so he could attend.

Check this out:

David Lawee, VP Corporate Development, Google; founder, XFire.
Main take-away: Hurry Up. David emphasized the role of speed in a startup, and how the modern timetable is considerably shorter than a more traditional “2 years until product launch” strategy. Your ability to turn on a dime and do things quickly is highlighted as a major advantage for the startup.

This was essentially the main rationale behind the product development talk I gave at the Seattle Tech Startups meeting last week. Yay.
