Celebrating the first believers

There’s a group of people in the startup ecosystem that’s severely under-appreciated.

They are the first believers – the employee #1s.

These are the people who will invest a part of their lives for the shitty job/salary/job prospect founders are giving. Yet they are hardly celebrated (with the exception of Sheryl Sandberg) like founders, investors and users.

 

Go hug an employee #1 now.
