Let’s assume that your runway is two years (which is generous — most startups have to navigate much shorter timelines). If the prospect of running out of cash in two years doesn’t speed up your metabolism already — just realize that every week which passes by is 1% of your time with your company.

For every entrepreneur it’s crucial to understand with every fibre of your body that time is of the essence.
