|One Startup||Two Startups|
|Focus||Applying things in both. Learning a valuable
lesson in one startup can help you
prevent mistakes in the other.
|Commitment Enforced||Commitment Still Possible|
|The one thing (book)||One thing makes you blind, it's better to
see multiple viewpoints because
you work in different environments
|Tricky. Startups have risk.
You can loose it all at once
|Dynamic. Lean. Possibilities.|
|Your employee has you.
No authentic compensation required
|Working at two startups at once
stimulates competition between your employees.
You can reward your best startup with
working there more and harder.
This automatically makes your salary
closer to what you are worth
|80% failure. Success after 5 times on average||64% Failure. Success after <3 times on average|
|Most people do it.||Elon Musk does it|
These are all good reasons to go for two startups. So I do.
