One of the things that slows startups down so much is the reluctance to "rewrite code". Code is MEANT to be rewritten, and rewriting it is a sign of learning and evolution. If you're not constantly refactoring things you've built, you're probably not doing your job.

And if this seems scary to you, and all you can think about is "the cost of rewriting code", you either have the wrong team, or the wrong perspective, when it comes to building early stage products.

This is also why outsourcing startup products to agencies usually doesn't work. Changes there cost real money, which scares founders and investors. That fear means slower iteration, which ultimately usually means premature death.

I'll say it one more time, in case I wasn't clear: iterating on your product is your only shot at finding product/market fit, and iterating necessarily means burning things down and rebuilding parts. If you're scared to do that, get out of the startup game.
