Hoping that the Key to Success is to Not Die

Posted in Uncategorized by efalcao on October 22, 2007

Yesterday the Evenlevel founders got together and scoped out the relaunch of Evenlevel. I enjoyed calling it the Evenlevel 2.0 Project Launch Meeting.

It’s been a hard few weeks having our hard work go down the drain. Everyday that passes, new life is coming back to our business and we’ve worked out a new business model.

Paul Graham indicated that startups tend to either succeed or die. He then proposes that in order to find success, one should simply not die. We’re going to be taking that to heart at Evenlevel: choosing to persist rather then fold.

We left our meeting extremely optimistic. In a sense we are starting over, but more importantly we have all the knowledge that came with the first version of Evenlevel. The best part of all: 80%+ of the original Evenlevel code will be reused.
