Startup.com – Essential viewing for anyone considering setting up in business

I recommend this documentary to all my mentees – it’s available from Amazon – http://amzn.to/UnseBq

The real life nature of the film work as it chronicles the dot-com start-up of 2 aspiring entrepreneurs. It is a real eye opener as it follows them from them debating over the name to call it (they ultimately called their e-commerce website govWorks) to the founders Kaleil Isaza Tuzman and Tom Herman falling out after raising over $60 million dollars as the Internet bubble was bursting.

The guys were very well intentioned and had great ability but the documentary is a cautionary tale of what mistakes to avoid. Tom Herman documented what he learnt and the pitfalls he recommends avoiding here – Startup.com Tom Herman’s Lessons Learnt
