Talking about A-listers, few weeks ago I was joking with a friend of mine on how he should donate his “Google employee” status to some up and coming startup. There is definitely a big PR premium for startups who can flaunt “ex-Googler” label. Lot of that is justified but en-masse PR rush towards these startupsis not healthy. IMHO.
Lesson for budding entrepreneurs- either join one of these hot companies or be friendly with somebody who can be lend his “ex-” status down the road.
