On the useless business plan for startups

On Amazon and Bezos, two myths of this generation (and of mine). Please consider that Amazon started shipping books in 1995. From Brad Stone’s new book on Bezos and Amazon:

  • Amazon's Business plan sent in 1995 to outside investors:
    Year 2000: Sales 74M$, Profits 0 (breakeven).

  • Real World
    Year 2000: Sales 1.6B$, Loss 1.4B$.

Useful ah?

And it was before dot.com boom.
