Startups Learn To Do More With Less… For Now

from the good-for-them dept

One of the worst parts about the dot com bubble was that startups were bringing in much more cash than they needed, and it often made them careless with their money. When a company is in startup mode, it’s often good to have them be a little tight on cash, as it can actually lead to more creative solutions, while keeping the company focused. It appears that’s happening these days as more startups are learning to make smaller amounts of cash last longer. Of course, recently, the VCs started opening up the vaults (which are still quite full), so it’s likely that we may see some more crazy fundings – and this is likely to be followed up with crazy spending. For all the lessons learned about not squandering cash, many will disappear when cash is actually present.
