In this world there are many startups? Almost every industry is having startups. There are web startup, tech startups and many more. There are many things which should be kept in mind before working for a startup. They only focus on salaries, benefits, job description and many more. But they forget and neglect some of the few main areas.

Many who are interested in working for a startup forget few questions and they have justification for that. According to them I didn’t find appropriate to answer these questions, I didn’t even think that they should be considered while working for a startup and stuff like that.

You people must be thinking that what those questions are; they must be same standard questions like all others tell us.NO! They are not. I’m just trying to tell you that you should cover these areas as well before working for a startup.

How did they meet, since how long they know each other are the key questions one should know? What is the reason which brought them together here? Are the synchronized mentally? There are many startups that fail not because they fail to grab the customers and win the market just because their founders are not on the same table. You should consider this thing before working for a startup that either founder is ready to get along with each other or not.


  1. Team bonding:

Teams in startups are very close. They are with each other most of the time. You should be very careful while interacting with them. If you do not make it with anyone of them then your life is going to be hell.


  1. Importance of any idea:
