Most founders of successful companies only own between 5-10% of
the company by the time of the first exit. Although there is no
magic formula for success, one can certainly increase those odds
greatly in favor of the founders by understanding the game. In
some sense, how you play the game is more important than the product
or service you offer. You need to prepare all the plays before
the game begins and execute those plays to your end goal. Why
is Friendster and MySpace an afterthought? They didn’t play
the game right!
Group messaging startup, GroupMe, was sold to Skype for $68 million
in just 370 days while many others with similar services withered
and died. They knew how to play the game!
Most of the time the outcome of your startup is decided by whom
you have aligned with your company. Are you with the right investors?
How do you meet these investors? The players and the dynamics

of your startup. You need to know how to be part of this elite
club of VCs and investors.
