Video Of The Week: Joel Spolsky at Startup School
The startup school talks are great. I've watched a bunch of them.
Joel Spolsky is the founder and CEO of our portfolio company Stack Exchange.
His talk is a great discussion of the difference between the "get big fast" strategy and the "organic growth" strategy. This is something every entrepreneur really needs to understand. We see a lot of folks pitching us to invest in "organic gowth" businesses and Joel explains why that is a mistake.
Here is his talk (sorry I can't for the life of me figure out how to embed the startup school talks).
