Stones Reviewer Connects ‘Start Me Up’ to Startups

American-Israeli serial entrepreneur Bob Rosenschein knows his way around an elevator pitch. The MIT grad has been involved with a number of such rides, from to content curation App Curiyo.


Via Twitter, he recently shared a great piece by his friend Alan Weinkrantz, a PR advisor to startups. After attending the Rolling Stones show in Tel Aviv, Weinkrantz cranked out a unique review of the group’s restarted “14 On Fire” tour. We’re big fans of non-traditional critiques of films and live performance; on the Stones trail this year, this take is going to be hard to beat.

Weinkrantz’s blog post for the The Times of Israel is titled “10 Lessons Startups Can Learn From The Rolling Stones.” One of our favorites is Lesson #6:

Collaborate with co-founders, even when they leave or go other ways.

It was nice to see Mick Taylor join the band tonight for a bit. You may part ways with early founders. Don’t forget your roots and your family.

We have a feeling that after all these years, Mick, Keith and the boys are equally inured to a traditional concert review. FishbowlNY hopes someone makes sure they see this one.

Editor’s Note: A previous version of this post incorrectly attributed authorship of the the cited article to Rosenschein, rather than Weinkrantz. FishbowlNY apologizes for the mix-up.
