Allometric Scaling and Generative AI
How generative AI is changing startups
Some things won’t change. Smaller teams will always move faster, relative to larger teams. But other characteristics will be very different. The formula we use to calculate revenue per employee will change, for example. If you can have fewer people, every business operation gets easier, and as business elements get easier, you need even fewer people. Fewer people means less of everything that isn’t building and selling to customers. Fewer people means founders have fewer meetings, fewer disagreements, less politics, faster decision making, and faster experimentation.
