A lot of people tend to hesitate when it comes to working for a startup, yet this article is the perfect example why working for a startup can give you the chance to be at the core of a great invention.
Working with a number of startups myself, I can say with a lot of confidence that if you like innovation, bleeding edge technology and working with highly intelligent "out of the box" thinkers, there is no better place for you to be in this day and age.
Working for a startup really is the future in my opinion, seeing as so many corporate business are going under with their traditional methods of working.
Glassjar, the kiwi software start-up whose app provides people an easy way of sharing bills, has launched in the United States. The former Christchurch company is now based in Silicon Valley in the US start-up accelerator Y Combinator, which provides US$120,000 in seed funding to every start-up it invests in. It's the first kiwi company to have been accepted into the accelerator which has helped develop companies like Airbnb and Dropbox. Glassjar was started in 2013 by a group of University of Canterbury students as a way for flatmates to more easily sort out paying the bills.
