All Great Startup Teams Have These 3 Traits

by Terrence Yang | Founder, Precelerator, Yang Ventures | @yangterrence

  • Determination. A great team is determined to make something people want asap. This means shipping fast and often, running fast cheap tests, watching users in person use the product and asking for feedback. This includes being resourceful and persistent.
  • Monomaniacal Passion. A great team is solely focused on and obsessed about solving one problem for one (initial) demographic. The team should be genuinely passionate about the problem they are solving and the startup’s purpose.
  • Urgency/Drive. A great team has a sense of urgency and wants to build product, release to many users and iterate and repeat, all within as short and tight a loop as possible.
