“No, I can't! I am not ready!” This would have been my answer if two years ago somebody had asked me if I were ready to become a father.
“Of course! Where do I need to sign to start?” And this would have been what I had said if I were asked whether I wanted to found and jam my startup.
Today, two years later, I am not sure about what happened to me. Did I launch my startup or am I become a father?
Since I started this adventure with my two co-founders, Pietro e Andrea, I am kind of sure that the answer is that we jammed a startup.
Well, then, why am I so confused? I’ll try to explain.
You win a startup competition not actually knowing what is going on. You are thrilled and everybody is happy for you. Anyway, when you start working hard on it, you become aware about how difficult it is to make your fantasies of new born startupper real.
Like when you become a father, you feel happy, incredulous and pleased by the greetings that affectionate people show you. All this is soon wiped out by a new born baby that, despite the loving gaze, invades your life crying at night-time for feeding and being reassured.
