Reply To: How would you assess the culture in start-up company



While I agree on the importance of leadership especially in a start-up culture since it dictates the “heartbeat” of the company, I would like to throw in a different thought on start-up. Given that many-start up rely on growing their top line fast while cutting cost aggressively (especially those with limited funds), unless these start-up have deep pockets, I am not sure how the start-up culture could be healthy in anyway. In my mind, I can only see the focus of growing my valuations and getting vc/pe to believe in what I am doing. So unless I am able to achieve this fast such that I have the breadth and capacity to take things easier, I dont think that the culture would be healthy.
