The Reverse Startup
What would you say are the normal skill sets that the founders of a website might have? Better yet, how about the founding team of a social sharing platform? We put some thought to the above questions and began to realize that the trend these days are really quite interesting. It seems that a majority of founders are more technically oriented (engineers and/or designers), than they are business oriented (marketers, operations, finance). These teams build beautiful products and mind blowing websites, but really only utilize word of mouth (basically their friends and other close networks) to bring their products to market.
