It wasn’t supposed to be like this.
Let me make this very clear: I did it for the money. That’s why I started a company. Though the search for funding forced me to wax eloquent about my entrepreneurial vision to revolutionize human existence, all I wanted to do was to find a way to throw together a company and sell it to a greater fool, preferably for cash.
It’s been almost two years now, and alas, any dreams of getting rich quick are gone. All that’s left are the memories of the millions my company spent (all of which I wish I had back), and the kernel of a business that just might work. And that’s enough.
After all, isn’t that what entrepreneurship should be about? At least, that’s what I said in my B-school interview to get in.
