While I try to use this blog for a lot of things that help others out, sometimes I have to just self-promote a little. For those of you who don’t know, I’m a co-founder of GetMinders, WeWork Labs and GuyHaus (all based in NYC). One is a healthcare-related startup, one is an awesome office space for early-stage entrepreneurs and the last is my latest company which is focused on making ecommerce simple, useful and fun to use. Check out the article on FastCompany:
There’s serial entrepreneurship–when someone starts company after company, handing over the reins at a certain point to focus again on the early stages of building a business. Then, there’s simultaneous entrepreneurship, which involves starting and running several, not-necessarily-related ventures at once.Two famous examples of the simultaneous startup CEO are Jack Dorsey, with Twitter and Square, and Bill Gates, who ran the photography business Corbis alongside Microsoft. Now, a host of upstarts (like Citelighter, a company we wrote about in August) are trying to make this method work, sometimes financing one business with profits from the other.
