ADDENDUM: Learn How To Build Your Startup By JOINING One

Here’s an interesting thing I realized when I was thinking of the previous post :

From my stint in Chikka, I know around 7 people who have developed (or are developing) startups upon leaving the firm.

In my own startup, STORM, a company of around 12-15 people at any given time, 2 people who’ve left the firm have formed their own startups (hello Kiko Loseo and Ope Linchangco!).

Knowing how sparse Filipino startups are, this is no coincidence: working for a startup prepares you to run one.

  1. I’m here! Hehe! “working for a startup prepares you to run one.” — True! It pays to learn the ins and outs of a startup before you establish your own startup. 🙂 As for me, I learned a lot! From the basic (and very tedious :p ) administrative tasks, taking care of clients to delivering quality service. Thanks to STORM, Pao and Peter (Oha! I dropped the “Sir” na. 🙂 )

    1. Haha, I knew I’d bait you in commenting 🙂 Thanks for chiming in.

      Naalala ko pa yung mga usap natin ng “hr career” vs pursuing your passion. I’m really happy you chose the latter. Make us proud!

      You should drop by the office sometime!
