Stay in consulting or go for the kill doing a startup?

Always up for chasing the dream... but depends on what the startup is?


what are you waiting for already? Another unicorn is calling!

Something you're launching on your own or joining? Is it well seeded?

I would say believe and go for it!

Currently consulting while developing the idea on the side (co-founded). Doesn't need funding to kick off. Will my time spent at the startup work against me if I reapply to corporations in 1, 2 years

Hmm, cool. Has it been hard developing the idea with your work load? Had a coworker leave and launch his. It failed (for good reasons I guess) a year and half later. He used the experience to get

into harvard grad school. I don’t think it hurts, and think it can actually help if you have a good story around it. Everyone tells me the best time to start a startup is always now.

Yeah it's getting tough, the startup is in Singapore so it's hard coordinating our work/communication.

Definitely go for the kill. Especially if you have some momentum already. Are your cofounders based stateside or in singapore?
