Strap in, fellow entrepreneurs. It’s time to experience that harrowing, energising thrill of trying to turn an idea into a business. Hope you didn’t enjoy a heavy lunch.
Some friends of David Hauser, a Boston-based businessman who has launched more than five startups, created this little Flash presentation, which compares the emotional journey of creating a business to a rollercoaster ride.
Some of the observations are spot-on, even witty. The main thing missing here is, well, a proper rollercoaster. This one goes up, down and, if your idea bites, jumps the track. But any decent ‘coaster today has loops, corkscrews and flashy tunnels.
Surely there’s a parallel between the entrepreneurial experience and going upside-down and inside-out? Sound familiar to anyone? Urp.
