Start on Your Own

Mark Suster, Serial Entrepreneur

Serial entrepreneur and investor Mark Suster urges founders to start out on their own, to avoid early dilution. Suster believes entrepreneurs deserve to keep a greater share of their companies, when possible, as they are the ones taking the critical first leap. While Suster claims some in Silicon Valley may think this idea is “heresy,” he does not understand why burgeoning entrepreneurs are willing to give so much away, so early.
