Benedikt Franke: “The most critical person of your business is yourself. You must challenge everything. Don’t build up your own opinion upon the feedback of your family or friends.

Antonio Garcia Martinez: “This is how the Silicon Valley works: You launch ten half-ready products out of the blue and announce them as the ‘savior of humanity’. Seven of these miserably fail, two do kind of okay, only one does absolutely amazing with incredible monetarization for reasons that only make sense after the fact. And, you will take that after-the-fact explanation and rewrite the creation myth of the product to make it seem like you knew this was going to happen all along but of course you didn’t.”
