How I Got My Startup Profitable in 6 Weeks

How I Got My Startup Profitable in 6 Weeks | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
Samuel Pavin's insight:

(Chris Bolman, via Medium)

I like the point about profitability since it links back to the "new" rise of B2B startups - with the monetization in the background.

And the points made by Chris are must-have for any startup out there (for instance, not being able to pitch your product/value in one sentence definitely is a poor start).
