The Living Dead Company

Depending on your perspective this is either a great outcome (a small, lifestyle, tech business) or a terrible outcome ("living dead" startup with little or no equity value).  VCs and hyperambitious founders think of companies that reach a certain scale, but never become a breakout success as the worst form of failure. Rather then fail fast and be able to move on to something else, the entrepreneur is locked into a company on a slow to nonexistent trajectory.  The company spins off enough cash to stay alive and pay salaries, but not enough to grow at a meaningful rate.  Additional funding is not available as the company is viewed as a small cash business.  The entrepreneur feels like she can never leave ("I owe it to the employees and investors to stick around") and the VCs are stuck with a board seat that takes up a big chunk of their time.

Who is Ken Bautista?

"Everyone always talks about entrepreneurship like a marathon, that it is a long haul that you have to push through. I say it’s more like ‘parkour’ where you jump from one building top to another. You always need to shift and adapt; and if you do it enough, you begin to anticipate different situations. It’s never going to be a straight path to something and you need to know when something is not working. There is a difference between being stubborn, and knowing when its not working in order to approach it differently." (Source)
