Jeff Bussgang over at Harvard Business School wrote a book about how to join a startup.
His reasoning: to help you find a job with a purpose.
All respect, but no.
A company with a purpose can be a lipstick manufacturer. It can be a billion dollar software company. The struggle of growth isn’t where “a job with a purpose” is created.
Finding that purpose. Experiencing it at work. Aligning to it. As a team.
We can create this anywhere.
No need to run away to Startup Land. It’s all culture.
