#startupschool notes: Nate Blecharczyk, Founder, Airbnb

October 19, 2013

You need confidence
You are going to fail more than you succeed
Past experiences prepare you
Worse thing is have a partner that doesn’t work hard as you do
Choosing your partners is one of the most important things you can do
Three clicks to book it
There is a lot of stress when starting a company
Investors don’t want Ms they want Bs
Before you quit you have to give it 100%
You need people who will never give up
It’s better to have a few users to love you vs a 1000 users who like you
Do things that don’t scale
perseverance is what matters the most
