Paul Graham writes about the “surprises” founders saw in their experience at YC. I’m happy to report that none of these are surprises to us (anymore) since building HomeField.
By reading Paul Graham from the start, we expected a lot of what is written here - though as he says, maybe not to the extent that we expected. The stuff we didn’t expect, well, now we know.
Regardless, this is required reading for anyone considering startup life, and it’s a good read for anyone who needs to understand a little more.
