Unsexy Startups

When people build companies with amazing appeal in a hot space and get tons of press, I really respect that. I’ve found I have a soft spot though for those startups who aren’t as sexy and who’s products might take a little longer to take off, but in turn are dedicated to solving a thorny, very tangible human need. I have deep admiration for people in the tech space who know the impact they want to make on their users lives, take the long view, and are willing to forgo some of the quick glory in the interest of building a company that lasts.
