Summary:Yes, to build the next Slack, the next Amazon, the next Tesla, whatever, you probably need the next Elon Musk.But many founders at very successful start-ups are smart and driven, but no Elon Musk.You’re already ahead of 98% of the folks at WeWork and Galvanize if you are 100% committed to doing the time.But more broadly, Successful Startups can be built a lot of ways.

{//摘要:是的,要打造下一个Slack,下一个亚马逊,下一个特斯拉,不管是什么,你可能需要下一个埃隆-马斯克.但许多非常成功的初创公司的创始人都很聪明和有动力,但没有埃隆-马斯克.如果你100%致力于做时间,你已经领先于WeWork和Galvanize的98%的人.但更广泛地,成功的初创公司可以通过很多方式建立。

Let’s split this into two categories.

让我们把它分为两类。

Let’s first talk about what you don’t have to get right:

我们先来谈谈你不需要做好的事情。

• Rockstar Founders? Not required. Yes, to build the next Slack, the next Amazon, the next Tesla, whatever, you probably need the next Elon Musk. But many founders at very successful start-ups are smart and driven, but no Elon Musk. I’m not / wasn’t.

* 摇滚明星创始人?不是必须的。是的,要想打造下一个Slack,下一个亚马逊,下一个特斯拉,不管是什么,你可能需要下一个埃隆-马斯克。但很多非常成功的创业公司的创始人都很聪明,很有魄力,但没有埃隆-马斯克。我不是/不是。

• Amazing Technology? Nope. See Airbnb and 100s of others.

* 惊人的技术?没有。请看Airbnb和其他100家公司。

• First to Market? Of course not. See Google, Jet, etc. etc. Definitely can help. But not really necessary.

* 第一个进入市场?当然不是。请看Google、Jet等等等等等。绝对可以帮助。但不是真正的必要。

• 10x Better than Incumbents. Only sort of required. Yes, your new product does have to better than the existing guys. But sometimes only in just 1 small, but important, way. And sometimes just Cheaper and Best Service also work without any real different features.

* 比Incumbents好10倍。只算是必须的。是的,你的新产品确实要比现有的家伙更好。但有时只是在1个小的,但重要的方面。而且有时只是更便宜和最好的服务也可以,没有任何真正不同的特点。

• Domain expertise. Not required. Helps, yes. But you can learn a lot if you are 100% committed.

* 领域的专业知识。不是必需的。有帮助,是的。但如果你100%投入,你可以学到很多东西。

• Work 100 Hours a Week? It helps. But it doesn’t make the business. But time in the office is not as important as time spent thinking about the business.

* 每周工作100小时?这有帮助。但它不能成就业务。但在办公室里的时间不如花在思考业务上的时间重要。

What you do have to get right:

你必须要做好的事情。

• Total commitment. It will take you most likely 24+ months just to get to real paying customers. And 7–10 years to build something of any scale. Most so-called “founders” are not this committed. You’re already ahead of 98% of the folks at WeWork and Galvanize if you are 100% committed to doing the time.

* 全身心的投入 你很可能要花24个月以上的时间才能找到真正的付费客户。而要建立任何规模的东西,则需要7-10年。大多数所谓的 “创始人 “都没有这样的决心。如果你100%投入时间,你已经领先于WeWork和Galvanize的98%的人了。

• Product-market fit. You do have to eventually get to a minimum sellable product. You have to find a product the market wants to buy.

* 产品与市场的契合度。你最终确实要达到一个最低限度的可售产品。你必须找到一个市场想买的产品。

• A Minimum Viable Team. You can outsource development. You can do a single co-founder startup. But. Many folks start something without a truly Minimum Viable Team. No chance without it. You have to be able to build, ship, market, and sell your product.

* 一个最低限度的可行团队。你可以外包开发。你可以做单个联合创始人的创业。但是。很多人创业没有一个真正的最小可行团队。没有它就没有机会。你必须能够构建、出货、市场和销售你的产品。

• Commitment to Excellence and Constant Iteration. You can’t build it once, put it on a shelf, and wait. You may need 100 releases before you have a sellable product. And then 200 more to get to $1m in ARR.

* 致力于卓越和不断迭代。你不能只做一次,就把它放在架子上,然后等待。你可能需要发布100个版本,才会有一个可销售的产品。然后再发布200个,才能达到100万美元的ARR。

• Obsession. And you need to obsess about your business. Constantly. In the shower. On a run. You may only “work” 40 hours a week. But you need to be thinking about your business 140 hours a week.

* 痴迷。而且你需要对你的业务痴迷。不断地。在洗澡的时候。在跑步的时候。你可能每周只 “工作 “40小时。但你需要每周140小时思考你的业务。

Unicorns are usually built one way. But more broadly, Successful Startups can be built a lot of ways.

独角兽通常是以一种方式建立的。但更广泛地说,成功的创业公司可以用很多方式来构建。
