Evolve into Something Bigger, Better and Different

Not every startup dies.

Many come back reincarnated as something else.

Flickr started out as as a multiplayer online game, but evolved into a photo management and sharing application. Amazon started out as a bookseller, but evolved into the planet’s biggest and best ecommerce retailer. MySpace started out as a social network, but evolved into an entertainment destination for performers. Nintendo started out as a playing card company, but evolved into the world’s largest video gaming company. And Twitter started out as way to make announcements, but evolved into a news and content sharing platform.

Just when we think we’re going to die, we evolve into something different, something bigger and something better than we ever could have imagined.
