Zero To One RECAP

Many people said that this is one of the best book for people who want to found startup company. Here are some bullet points what i like after reading this.

  • The world could be the better place only by technology implementation.
  • Startup is the largest group of people you can convince of a plan to build a different future. (Smallest as possible, keep it lean!)

  • Real happy company won’t say they are happy. If they are monopoly, they will tell you that they aren’t.
  • Great business is defined by its ability to generate cashflow in the future. (Times VS Twitter)

  • Character of monopoly are 1. Proprietary Technology, 2. Network Effect, 3. Economic of Scale, 4. Branding
  • To start, start small — facebook start only focus in Harvard University in the first place. Then, just scale it up.
  • Don’t disrupt, don’t create competitors.
  • Chapter 11 is my most favourite. They said that everyone is a saleman. We have to sell & pitched something to others.
  • Customer life time value (CLV) must be greater than Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC)
  • Man and Machine are complementary. We have to work together to build something disrupt!
