Is Flying Under the Radar Better Than Being Stealth?
They seem to be becoming less popular lately, but not too long ago “stealth” startups were a growing fad in the Internet entrepreneurship sector. A team with a big idea would insist on keeping their business a secret from the public and even from investors until the last possible moment in an effort to ward off any fast moving idea vultures that might swoop in and copy their idea. Others went stealth to create a buzz around their mysterious and unknown project. Some argue, however, that being stealthy limits a startup’s opportunities for funding and feedback, among other things, so is there a better way to go about this?
