Why start-ups have nothing to give
Start-ups usually do not have enough employees, money and/or time to take care of the various tasks when building a successful business. This is especially true for IT. Some founders bring IT knowledge with them, or they bring in the right expert for the team. But a CIO alone may not be able to create a new product, nor offer new services. It requires a sufficient amount of employees which is often very expensive, meaning financially, you’re right back to where you started.
