How to start a startup (Sam Altman, Dustin Muskovitz)

Today's editorial is relevant for wantrepreneurs and early stage entrepreneurs everywhere. Sam Altman (CEO of OpenAI, former President of YCombinator) and Dustin Moskovitz (co-founder, Facebook & Asana) deliver the first lecture of the 'How to start a startup' series at Stanford University. One of the insights that stands out is the reason to start a company. Some of the oft-heard reasons like being one's own boss and aiming for a higher financial upside get challenged here. For example, you would have been financially better off as employee number 100 at Dropbox than as a founder of a successful startup sold for $100 million.
