Filmmakers and founders are both creative professionals, but founders have a seemingly endless stream of capital.

6 days ago | From HackerNoon | Author: Founder Collective

David Frankel relayed this quote from Regie Gibson, which was delivered at Cue Ball Capital’s annual gathering, as a reminder that capital is a constraint — though probably not the biggest constraint facing most startups. Hustle tends to be in much shorter supply. Here are a few inspiring stories of entrepreneurs illustrating the power of hustle over capital:
Wayfair: Instead of investing in costly ad campaigns in the company’s cash-strapped early days, Wayfair built 270 highly targeted websites, with ultra-specific names like “RacksAndStands.com” to game Google’s search algorithm, paving the way for what has become a $4B business.
ShutterStock, a $2B stock photo service, was started by a hacker/amateur photographer who personally built the site and launched it with 100,000 images from his photo collection.
CarGurus: Hustle doesn’t stop once you have raised venture capital. Langley Steinert raised $5M to get CarGurus started, but instead of seeking VC to hire even more engineers, he used the revenue he was generating to hire hundreds of sales reps to generate even more revenue — now the company is cruising towards an IPO.

On December 17, 1903, the brothers made the first successful controlled flight in a powered aircraft at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Though it flew 59 seconds a distance of 852 feet — which was a commendable feat — the design was underpowered and difficult to control. They next built test flight...  ...Read more

VC’s don’t just bet their money on your idea and rather take informed decisions, so you better give them a solid reason.

Countless times over the last decade, I’ve heard other venture investors refer to their investments as “bets.” Earlier in my venture career, I was absolutely guilty of this because I wasn’t being mindful and probably lacked some necessary empathy. At the time, I don’t think I truly appreciated wh...  ...Read more
