Are you already failing? ⛰️

But do you care about someone else's measure of success?

The issue with being the go-to person on a topic is that people expect you to have ready answers to their questions.

So when people ask us - the Incubateur staff - which are the most successful startups that we know of, they await our response.

Truth is, we don't know.


Not because we don't know our startups (at least I hope so).

But because we are not quite sure what success is.

Should you be rich; should you be helpful? Should you be powerful; should you be loved? Should you be well-surrounded; should you be free?

Each of those is a summit to climb, each of us carrying our Sisyphean burden.


And if success means reaching the pinnacle of your mountain, then our role might be to ask:

“Are you satisfied? Will you go one step further?”
