- Dear MBAs who want to work at startups | from This is going to be BIG! – Comments on New York Tech Community, Startups, Venture Capital and Career Education
January 30, 2010 – Charlie O’Donnell, EIR at First Round Capital (one of our backers) writes just excellent advice for MBAs trying to work at startups. It’s a little harsh at first but also spot on. I think this advice goes in both directions (Entrepreneurs shouldn’t think they know what all “MBAs” are like just because they met some asshole who couldn’t shut up about Harvard) but I did see a number of my classmates committing some of these errors.
