@Count of Banterbury,
So... 5 months of work. Flush down the toilet. And most likely, I will not see any money from it and if, some tiny change. I feel rather upset, even depressed. Maybe the best thing to do will be list things I can do better:
- First and most: if I look back into some big long-term failure biggest mistake I find in lack of thorough and assertive communication. I let the guy play on his own rules despite he was very bad at setting it. I suggested tens of models and he judged it from position of... scientist? That does not even make sense. No wonder we never concluded anything.
Next time: Suggest clear and brief model, even fool will understand instantly. If boy disagree, as what precisely. If criticism won't leave clear mutual understanding, make it his turn!
- Being business guy simply sucks. Regardless of how much work I do, I'll always be the guy who cares of real value which is not in my hands, but hands of it's developer - tech guy. Even scientist. If actual freakin company takes, place, 50-50 sharing is a MUST!
- Lastly, was I over ambitious? From pragmatic point of view: no. If things went the way I want them I am long building building my project. But did not because of point 1. Actually I enjoyed sector and was happy working over it!
Last question: Is biotech for me? I must analyze it most, but cons: requires deep comprehension, populated often by "meh" top notch titled specialist and above all, I see minimum real startups and mostly only research teams and corporation. Does not seem like a place for random wanderer from some Slavic shithole. I will talk to people and see if they take me as their equal. If not, maybe no-go..?
