  • First-hand Experiences on Startup Cliches, by Startup Lifer Jussi | Startup Life
    on growth and potential it may seem clever to expand the business as fast as possible and hire every person has a decent skillset Having interviewed several candidates here I ve seen how difficult it is to find great matches even with the great supply of talent The thing is that also the demand is huge and the best people already have jobs they re happy with For me at BetterDoctor growth has meant seeing new people start every other week and hearing how hiring is constantly one of our key goals Growth can create a lot of pressure as the sales and other targets are often set for a bigger team size with the hope of successful hiring in the near future Everything starts with pivoting In the startup world there is no time to create the perfect product before launching it to the world Great products start from small projects that test a certain hypothesis and change direction if there is no success This is called pivoting I ve noticed this to be extremely important for us in showing what we re capable of After demoing a half baked product some big players in the industry have been convinced of our skillset and contracts have moved forward faster than expected Some companies have taken this to the extreme and sold non existent products with just a landing page I guess that too can be a winning strategy for a startup Do first ask later In the early phases a startup can have a single source of knowledge It is the one person that can answer all the technical questions and make the right calls As the company grows bigger this starts to inhibit the communications and slow things down At about 30 people I think our company is

  • Why YOU Should Do an Internship in San Francisco, by Startup Lifer Emil | Startup Life
    can count happening all around you Yosemite national park and the giant redwoods are also just a drive away Combine this with superb weather all year round during the whole time I was there it rained ONCE for 5 minutes and you are set It feels like time is running out no matter how much you ve got left with all these possibilities If you are active or like to try new things San Francisco is definitely the place for you And that brings me to my next point which is food Something that SF is not lacking either in quality or quantity And there s always something new to try that would have never crossed my mind in a million years Like Sushiburrito Who would have thought As for the actual internship chances are that you won t find a better deal You get to work on challenging and important stuff right of the bat because it s a startup and they can t afford to waste you The other thing is that because it s a startup the circles are smaller In bigger companies interns don t get to play ping pong with the CEO or attend the same meetings That gives a unique and a lot more comprehensive view of the business than an entry level internship at a big company Startups also move a lot faster so a normal day will feel like two Add that to the constant challenges and a level of uncertainty and it can all feel like too much sometimes Though that is counterbalanced with more enthusiastic co workers Uninterested people just don t end up in startups I guess the small size and enthusiasm are afterall the reasons why on average the social atmosphere is very good in startups The company

  • Guide to Buying and Owning a Car in the Bay Area, by Startup Lifer Marko | Startup Life
    wish you can book a time online next available time slot usually goes as far as two or so weeks bring with you to the DMV the title transfer form you filled together with the seller and expect to pay for the following fees title transfer fee 15 must be paid within 30 days of the purchase date otherwise a 70 penalty fee is added sales tax 7 5 10 of the purchase price see below on how to save a few dollars on this vehicle registration fee if expired 200 valid for 1 year at a time can be paid online as well The sales tax you ll need to pay is calculated directly based upon the purchase price you and the seller write down on the title transfer form on the pink slip That is to say you can agree to tweak this number as per your conscience Once you ve visited the DMV to pay the necessary fees of the title transfer there will be no need for future visits unless of course you decide to get a local driver s license On the Road So you re finally ready for the road The thing you ll probably find yourself using your car most for is the commute So let s go over that first To beat the heaviest traffic prepare to embrace your inner morning person Assuming that you ll be driving south from San Francisco leave as early as 6 30AM to beat the morning traffic Expect to reach Redwood City in about 30 minutes if you live close to Highway 101 within 2 miles By leaving around 07 00AM you ve most likely already added a good 15 20 minutes to your commute Best way to avoid getting caught in traffic on your way to from work is to be either on an early or late schedule leave home work either early 6 00 6 45AM 02 30 3 15PM or late 9 45 10 30AM 07 45 08 30PM Commuting southbound is called the reverse commute as the majority of the people commute to the city For the most of my commute I found myself listening to podcasts and the news chatting over Skype with friends family and just relaxing Picking up a co worker to commute with was another good way to kill time behind the wheel The mobile network connection on Highway 101 works well enough for Skyping even on T Mobile On Highway 280 the connection is a tad worse Another big part of a driver s day to day business is parking Luckily street parking in San Francisco or in the Bay Area in general is fairly convenient For the most part the only thing you need to be aware of is not to park on a given street during so called street cleaning hours indicated by a white red sign on the side of the street There are a fair number of smaller details to be aware of

  • Getting settled in San Francisco! | Startup Life
    is considered standard Buses complete the San Francisco public transit Another tip When people say San Francisco is defined by its neighborhoods they don t exaggerate a tiny bit you can be in a high class block and just one street away it s full of people living in the streets Try to avoid conflictive zones at night especially when going alone This includes at least the Tenderloin which is right in the center so watch out It would be handy to have it marked in your map while you are getting to know the place Phone havoc Alright so you are already kinda settled know how to reach your office all rolling right Wroooong Now you need a bank account to get paid and an US sim card so you can start socializing Here you have to ask you some questions do I have an unlocked phone I want to use or I want to buy a new phone I want a data plan Do I have an iPhone more on this later No matter what your answers are the two main carriers are AT T more expensive and T Mobile crappy network I can t recommend on all possible scenarios but if you want unlimited texts calls and data this is a T Mobile reseller cheaper than T Mobile itself The trick The unlimited data is throttled at a slower speed at some point so if you plan on streaming stuff it will become quite slow at some point during the month AT T has neat prepaid plans and better coverage but it s more expensive and they don t offer prepaid plans for iPhone users although apparently the sim card works anyway so if you manage to get one by say talking to the manager you are all set Banking for profit and peace of mind Did I mention that you need an US bank to get your payroll And also because every time you get money in an ATM with your foreigner card you might be incurring into some quite disgusting fees so let s get rid of those shall we Now most banks here in the US are quite crappy in their offerings and they don t adhere to IBAN standards To transfer money from your home account to the one you open here you have to do a wire transfer with SWIFT codes and all which will take anytime from 2 to 5 days or so to arrive and will cost around 25 euros Some banks have foreign partners with whom they can arrange transfer at a reduced fee so that s something to take into account if you happen to have an account in one of those Another thing to take into account if that they charge you if you use their cards in other bank s ATMs so choose one that is well represented From a quick view around the city Well s Fargo Bank of America and Chase are the ones
