Startups, Cash Burn & Success
Startups tend to spend less and conserve more cash these days says this WSJ article. Today's start-ups,says the article, “hoard their cash and find inexpensive ways to attract attention resulting in reduced start-ups' "burn rates". This way the current tech boom may play out differently than the dot-com frenzy. As start-ups aren't going through cash at such a blistering pace, that gives companies more time to figure out what works in their business. Many venture capitalists right now are flush with cash to invest, so some are giving bigger-than-needed chunks to start-ups. They also like to give more so start-ups have enough socked away in case of an emergency. The start-ups that save are also finding their cash cushion gives them more time to tweak their products and business model.
