closing startups

closing startups.. what you gained..

an experience with investors

an experience with self

that what could go wrong.. went so

but no onwards a choice exists

be an employee if you cannot lead

be an employer if you lead

investors burnt their money

lost and forgotten

some ventures succeed

some ventures fail..

but let us hope for best

so decide what you wish

 

 

Dark Stories

a boy and girl were happily in love till one day, the boy suspected girl for causing him trouble at work and left her. 2 years latter, he realized that it was the jealous friend of him, who caused this misunderstanding so as to get closer to girl but.. what happened next…  She had hung herself ..

a startup went bust and the CEO just ran off to UK.. However his family members back in India.. bore the brunt.. till one day.. he realized that his only daughter had now taken to drugs and his son was found guilty of cheating a company of Rs1 crore..  He could have chosen to return back.. but then he felt, there is something beyond his control.. He sent some sorry emails and letters to his family..

Life can take a U turn anytime..

Suspicion, running away from situation can anytime lead us to problems .. sooner or later.. Better to understand the issue and sort it out, rather then bottling emotions and leaving space for more dark stories.

 

Some relation never end

Relation of a mom with a kid..t

Relation of a mentor with a student

Relation of  unknown with known

Life is nothing but a chain of events, programmed to move in a direction..  with doses of artificial intelligences put in..  each moment is a decision making one, once we realize that we have power to decide..

if confused.. all relations will get broken and if not confused.. no relation can ever go bad..

reasons- simple science of holding a thread together between 2 match boxes without stretching it too much..

so any thing which stretches too much .. needs a pause..

any thing which hardly stretches at all.. need a test

relation validator is all about validating the pros and cons of relation and giving a score rating..

Startup bubbles up in Air

Startup bubbles up in Air…

With so many startups emerging all over the world.. the air gets filled with a vibrant ecosystem full of enthusiasm till reality check comes in..

Sam ”we have exhausted the last penny of the investments.. need another 100M$’

The board members look at each other and smile..

Sam ”what is your decision?”

Jack ”I have 2% equity in your loss making startup though it is valued US$750M.. so seriously speaking.. I do wish .. someone puts in 100M more to get it going”

Banker Rocky ”dear all.. we can invest.. but you need to acquire at least 4 companies more to consolidate your positon”

Sam ‘Sure.. we can…”

Rose ”seriously am not sure where we are heading.. the sentiments are not too rosy.. it seems the entrepreneurs are just not willing to boot strap with zeal any longer.. all looking out for some investments’ and only then the show goes on”

Sam ”No Rose.. we did boot strap…”

Rose ”anyways.. whatsoever is board decision.. let us go by that”

After the meeting

Sam ”Rose.. you could have been less nasty..  what about our personal quotient’?”

Rose ”it finished way back.. when you left me for Sophia.. and remember.. I did the whole lot of bootstrapping and helped you get seed funded”

Sam ”Rose.. one lesson I learnt in this game..

Rose ”what?”

Sam ”never feel shy to seek funds”

Rose ”I know.. you well”

Sam smiles
