Startup Chutes and Ladders

It takes persistence and willingness to give up control to win


I have recently left a great experience working for a growth stage startup. I also have a son who loves playing Chutes and Ladders. During one of our recent games, it dawned on me that Chutes and Ladders is great preparation for a startup. At its core, the game requires persistence to overcome a series of moves that move you forward and sometimes backward. You can come from behind to win in Chutes and Ladders even when you seem well behind your competition.
