Wow, that rant itself is the epitome of the startup world. Look at how many buzz words and click bait-y concepts they were able to shove into a single article; I dare say it’s a new record!
For the satire itself, while I am part of the “startup world” (work in the Bay Area, part of a 10-person VC funded startup, etc), I actively do my best to avoid the places and the kinds of people that medium post refers to. And maybe that is pretty telling about the state of the “startup world”.
There was a period of time in my younger university days when the “startup world” and being an “entrepreneur” was something I really wanted to be part of. However, looking forward now, I’m not so sure that 1) I’m cut out for it 2) there’s meaningful substance in the “startup world” anymore.
