Best of Paul Graham's Tweets for Startup Founders

Y-Combinator co-founder Paul Graham knows a thing or two about startups.

After all, Y Combinator, a technology startup accelerator, has helped launch over 3,000 companies, including household names like Airbnb, DoorDash, Dropbox, and Instacart.

The file below contains some of his best Tweets—key insights culled from years of working with some of the most successful founders in the country.

Here are some lessons from one of those founders—Sondre Rasch of Konsus, a Norwegian design company:

🔸 Cut to the chase.

🔸 Use words people understand to convey what you do.

🔸 Focus on talking to users and building your product.

🔸 Make something people want that will hold value for a long time.

🔸 Be genuinely good, but not in a delusional, hapless way.

Take a look at the insights below and let me know: Which ones resonate the most with you? Do you disagree with any of them?
