More About Myself And The Book…
Book Description From The Jacket
The Ultralight Startup is the book I wish I had when I was starting out five years ago. The Ultralight Startup offers a surefire plan for building an astoundingly successful tech startup for anyone with nothing more than a good idea and a lot of passion. It’s easier than ever before to launch a startup, but in a world where barriers to entry virtually nonexistent and everyone wants to be the next Facebook, competition is fierce. To win, you have to outsmart, outdo, and outshine everyone else. But if you’re just starting out and lack the money and clout to make an automatic splash, how do you differentiate yourself from all the rest?
Time commitment: 1-2 days a week working out of the Onswipe NYC offices. We’re one of the fastest growing startups in NYC, so you will learn a lot about business as well.
