Earlier this month, Crowdform launched, Startups for Realists, a new interview series where they talk to people in the world of startups about the realities of their day-to-day work.
Bucking the startup “positivity culture” trend, the series hopes to highlight that no matter if you’re a founder, an employee or an investor, startup life comes with many challenges and is rarely a walk in the park.
The appeal of “Startups for Realists” is the honesty. Whether it’s the COO of EmailOctopus crashing the servers of his previous employer, Baremetrics’ Head of Growth’s unpopular opinions about work-life balance, or the unenviable morning routine of Kapwing’s CEO, it feels like for a brief moment you’re being allowed a glance at the full picture of startup life – not the photoshopped one.
In 2019 this feels (unfortunately) like a rare privilege!
