I don't know about the lazy one, but the others are good, particularly the one on growth.

Point number 2 seems to be the encouraged approach nowadays, you don't profitably or even on the path to profit before expanding as long as you can get further venture capital.

Yes - the aim is the sky-high valuation, and jumping from one funding series to another... then hopefully, a major investor/group of investor would acquire the startup. A nice plan, but only a few can pull it off.

Ivan: Which is the biggest mistake at the moment, do you think?

I think the lazy part is pretty rampant. I should replace lazy with entitled... everyone wants to be an entrepreneur, but not many want to pay the price. The difference between bootstrapping and venture funding is real: The former pushes you to be profitable; the latter pushes you to be bigger; and in startup land, bigger is not always more profitable :)
