Good Communication


"You can't be focused without good communication. Even if you have only four or five people at a company, a small communication breakdown is enough for people to be working on slightly different things. And then you lose focus and the company just scrambles." — Sam Altman

From Lecture 2 of How to Start a Start-up. Lecture 1 here.

Sam Altman is the president of start-up accelerator Y Combinator.

Why do I post about tech start-ups? Because they have a lot in common with getting a new film off the ground, building a strong and focused team, and impressing investors that you're dealing in reality not just fantasy.

Show investors that you're passionate, not crazy.
