Poems on Startups

January 30th, 2015 by Miles Leave a reply »

I was asked to write a short submission for a Yale entrepreneurship book. Curious if you think this would be interesting or too silly? I can write more like these.

Outlook (a haiku)

Within a startup
Team have future optimism
pessimism re: now

For Want of a Customer

Grow users! More cashflow! ‘s my creed.
And to get it, a product I need.
Employees want salary, to build.
To pay, I must woo VC guild.
But investors seek traction indeed!

The Benefit of Co-Founders

With a cofounder,
highs and low in startup land
hit each off cycle.

Begin Now

A startup like a
sailboat can only rightly
steer when moving. Start!
