Discussion on: Do you work at a startup ?

Worked for a startup for 2 years previously. My question will be what is your intent of joining a startup. I joined a startup because I wanted to be a tech entrepreneur.

Pro: You learn a lot more by wearing multiple hats especially you are new and young. Who is interested in the problem on what the startup is solving to help the startup to grow big.

Con: You might have low pay and lack of job security due to high failure rate of most startups. FYI think like a investor when your joining one and know what you are getting into.

I won't go for a masters since it does not make much sense for me. As I value experience, network, skill, knowledge, personal brand more over a piece of paper and it's usually very expensive.

Lastly take a look at my article called Is Startup For Me? then you make your own decision.
