What does an early stage startup mean?
Though the definition would mean different to different people depending upon how many and how closely they have observed startups, In my association with four startups at different stages, I believe three of them qualify to be early stage startups broadly, and how do I define them are:
- At the idea stage, where the team & fundamental ingredients are getting into place.
- At the prototyping stage, also called bootstrapping and may be seed-funding stage.
- Or already bootstrapped but still Pre-Angel or Series A Angel/VC stage.
Here’s the reason “Why should you join a startup at an early stage!”
As I had mentioned earlier that I’ll be presenting this BarCamp at Delhi, I owe an apology to all those wanting-to-be-attendee(s) for canceling the presentation on the spot.
