5 Differences Between Startups & Starting Businesses

22 June 2017

In this article I discuss several differences between startups and starting businesses. I find this important because over the last year, I’ve gotten increasingly frustrated about the types of questions I (as a startup founder) would get. “Can you already live from your startup?” “Why is raising money is so difficult for you, there is so much capital out there?” “Why don’t you just use Facebook ads for advertising?” These type of questions seemed so naive,  so stupid. I wanted to yell out “what are you thinking! Of course I cannot live from my startup yet. It just doesn’t work like that, it’s not that simple!“. But, thankfully, at some point I realized that instead of getting frustrated by these questions, I needed to have a look at where these questions came from. And why I was getting so annoyed with them.
