Who says its a bad time to do a startup?

After hearing all the concerns, fears, and warnings about doing a startup in the type of economy we are in (a really bad one), this essay takes a refreshingly different perspective.

you should think far more about who you can recruit as a cofounder than the state of the economy. And if you’re worried about threats to the survival of your company, don’t look for them in the news. Look in the mirror.

 

How many times have I heard that investors don’t invest in companies, they invest in people.  It makes sense, anyone can have good ideas, but not just anyone can execute on them.  That sentiment rings true in this essay, even though the economy plays a role, especially when you are talking to investors and trying to raise money, what it really comes down to is the people involved and whether they can succeed or not, regardless of the economic state.
