Part of the work of a start up is not just the creation of systems and new technology and methods.
It is the organization and management of people.
That means the creation of a clear hierarchy and accounting structure.
That means the being able to pull a team together from nothing and drawing out of that team their best efforts and talents.
That means defining each of their roles in the foundational structure of the start-up.
It’s not a question of if an organization forms, it is a question of how and what kind.
That means there are many opportunities to change and adapt as conflict arises in the high energy and high intensity environment of a start-up, but only specific kinds of people with unique tolerances for stress and work and risk are able to thrive in this case.
Fortune favors the strong and wise, the intelligent and brave.
