After working with hundreds of different kind of startups in different industries, I must say that startups tend to do common mistakes.
The most common mistakes in my “list” are:
- Not understanding problem/solution fit (typically superficial understanding of this)
- Not knowing what to prioritize and trying to do too many different things (do less, do better)
- Focus on building sales - no focus on building understanding (focusing on sales will not work !)
Here is also a good video from Y Combinator partner about the biggest mistakes First-Time Founders make ( https://blog.ycombinator.com/the-biggest-mistakes-first-time-founders-make/ )
