Startup = Growth

Fantastic article from Y Combinator founder Paul Graham titled, "Startup = Growth".

I love the concept of using 'growth' as our 'compass' and only focusing on activities that are going to contribute to improving our growth rate.

  1. Mark has a good counter argument to Paul's essay: http://www.bothsidesofthetable.com/2012/09/22/is-going-for-rapid-growth-always-good-arent-startups-so-much-more/

    1. Great article as well, thanks for sharing Cameron. I think both articles have merit. Paul is talking about what defines a very high growth startup, Mark is saying it's ok to start a business and not necessarily aim for or achieve very high growth.
