This Korean startup is making wearables for the blind, but its ambition is much bigger
that's a really interesting outcome! am wondering what Uber did right in China that triggered its growth. i feel there's so much lessons to be learned there.

i think most of the entrepreneurs probably don't know that they are suffering under depression. I have had such instances before but glad it didn't consume me totally :)

Great article! I like PG's explanation in his article Startup = Growth :) http://www.paulgraham.com/growth.html "...not every newly founded company is a startup. Millions of companies are started every year in the US. Only a tiny fraction are startups. Most are service businesses—restaurants, barbershops, plumbers, and so on. These are not startups, except in a few unusual cases. A barbershop isn't designed to grow fast. Whereas a search engine, for example, is."

Don’t settle with a co-founder
Great article, Yan Ru :) I founded my first business with 2 best friends. It worked out well and we are still best friends. We had dispute but we sorted things out professionally. So I don't think it's true that bffs can't be good co-founders. It's how mature everyone is and how the "CEO or leader" deals with matters. My $0.02.
