A 0 to 1 startup involves low financial costs but low non-financial costs too. You’ll at least learn a lot and probably will be better for the effort. A 1 to n startup, though, has especially low financial costs, but higher non-financial costs. If you try to do Groupon for Madagascar and it fails, it’s not clear where exactly you are. But it’s not good.
From a marketing student to an iOS programmer to dealing with hardware and making a product work. I learn a lot and still learning.
From managing people to cash flow issues to operations constrain. Life never been this challenging.
