I always believed that Startups become what the Founders are i.e. the founders personality get transformed into the startup.
The way you think, the way you do things and how you solve problems will be transferred into your startup DNA. This is why it is so important that if you are a first time entrepreneur, don’t hire people immediately. First spend time knowing yourself, who you are, what you can do and what can’t and once you have figured out this, only then hire people.
