Alex Payne brings a powerful manifesto to all recent grads who want to jump onto a startup:

“If you’re in your late teens or early twenties, you’ve grown up in a world that has come to idealize startups, their founders, and the people who go to work at them.”

“If you’re in school, maybe you’ve felt pressure or been incentivized to drop out and join or start a company. If you’re already out in the working world, perhaps you feel that your non-startup job is in some way inadequate, or that you’re missing out on valuable experience and potential wealth.”

One of my favorite lines from Alex: “Startups are part of the system, not a rebellious wrench in the cogs.”
