I’m the founder of a B2B startup that solves fairly complex problems in a growing industry. The market is young, fragmented and not standardized, the data processing requires sophisticated custom-made algorithms and computational requirements are high. Development is hell and the sell-cycle long, which is straining our finances.
Today I met the founder of a trivial B2C startup, approximately the same age as mine, built with off-the-shelf libraries, which runs on a single server, turns over 10x more than mine and has exponential growth in a few months. I picked a hard battle because I thought that’s where the money is and I now feel like a moron.
Did anybody out there have similar experiences?
