Startup deadly sins

Roger Ehrenberg has a great post about failure and the seven deadly mistakes to avoid in a start-up:

  1. The lack of a single, "the buck stops here" leader until too late in the game
  2. No separation between the technology organization and the product organization
  3. Too much PR, too early
  4. Too much money
  5. Not close enough to the customer
  6. Slow to adapt to market reality
  7. Disagreement on strategy both within the Company and with the Board

The blog post in awesome read.
