I hear some founders say that one technology is the same as another when launching a startup. Scott Abel, chief executive of Austin-based software company Spiceworks Inc, says differently:
Choosing correctly was key, Abel said.
“You pick the right one, and everybody wants to be on your team; the cool, super-smart people flock to you. It’s huge for a tiny startup competing for resources,” he said. “It also gives you an advantage in the time it takes to get your product to market, and the size and speed of your application.”
Scott, I couldn’t agree more.
