10 Things about Starting a Company What they tell you & What they don’t tell you Kevin Wong Co-Founder, COO, Nulogy

1. Innovation Think different. Little innovation is truly new.

2. Sales Good sales people are hard to find. Find one that shares your passion and work ethic.

3. Product The best product never wins. But to start, it’s all you have.

4. Marketing Do your market research. You can’t afford real market research.

5. Management Get the right people on the bus. Keeping them on the bus can be as hard as getting them on.

6. Partners Get good lawyers and accountants. Pick partners that share your entrepreneurial spirit.

7. Critics That’ll never work. I don’t really understand what you’re doing.

8. Ego Startup investors are investing in YOU. Your greatest strength can be your greatest weakness.

9. Growth What got you here, won’t get you there. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

10. Life It always seems impossible until it’s done. The work is infinite. Know your limits.
