This article sums up everything that is wrong with tech entrepreneurs in this century. The perpetuating thought process that “you MUST go to the Valley to be successful” is ridiculous. Plenty of tech businesses have started outside the Valley and have been successful. There are actually a lot of benefits of being outside the Valley, which may even cancel out the benefits of being inside.
The other part of this article that got me frustrated was the attitude of these so called entrepreneurs. The pair seemed to want to do whatever it took to be successful; except actual business tactics like market research, launching their product, doing A/B testing, developing to make the product better, etc. Their whole goal was to find someone to give them a lot of money for their idea. An idea isn’t worth anything, until you combine it with great execution.
