As entrepreneurial communities grow all over the world, it’s becoming a lot easier to find other people with similar experiences. A single founder doesn’t have to sit in a room by herself and despair, she can go out for beers with other founders in equally difficult situations and commiserate.
That’s a huge thing. I would encourage more founders to do that and not stay locked up in a dark room alone. Sometimes founders just need to vent, but sometimes they can get constructive advice and input too.
