Gives an interesting list of tech companies in various stages (e.g. Super Early, Early etc) and a few insights on each... Relevant factors that cause a company to have a lot of ‘action happening’ * breakout revenue growth (i.e. what the breakout list currently shows) * exceptional team (e.g. experts at front of field) * exceptional team (“famous”/repeat successful founders) * high energy market * really strong recruiting brand / engineering bar perception * something that is somehow at the centre of customers' lives * side note — this is applying the small fig big pond to startup idea selection. better to go and sit at the very center, to do the hardest schlep, because then you are just in the middle of everything and it’s great Disclaimer (stolen from Marc Andreessen) * “These posts are aimed at high-potential people who want to excel throughout their careers and make a significant impact on their fields and the world. These posts are not appropriate for people for whom work/life balance is a high priority or for whom lifestyle is particularly important -- if that's you, there are plenty of existing career planning resources for you already!”
