An evolutionary approach to starting a company

Here’s a nice post by a VC taking a look at two ways of building a new business – either start well-funded by VCs or start as a one-man-band in a garage (or a two-man-band from sofas for Kyran and I).

“We don’t have a preference for one way or the other, but I will say that there is something particularly special about the companies that are created via the evolution approach.

They seem more “authentic”, to borrow a word from David Beisel.”

He frames the point as Intelligent Design vs Darwinian Evolution so the post’s comments get a little interesting.

    Unfortunately the article starts with one of the most narrow minded comments I've ever read so I couldn't be bothered to read on...
