Question from HL:
Delivering a project and building a product are VERY different. The team that is required to deliver the project will usually be a sub-set of the team that is required to conceptualize, build, market and build the product. If you don’t take care, you will end up with a sub-optimal product with an unhappy customer – meaning you will neither have the product nor the customer.
More than anything, a soul searching question will be:Is “having the project” the reason why I want to build a company or is it because I am passionate about this space?
If it is the former, chances are you are going in the wrong path.
