dont own any infra at all, goog suite, github, aws. The router is owned by the isp. When a new hire shows up you just take them to the apple store. The office is just a place with a coffee machine and whiteboards where the boss call yell at you in person.

yes obviously don’t own things, but what would you use? gsuite, in my experience, sucks. Microsoft stuff? does aws have a suite for me? what other options are there? this isn’t really my area

all 50 employees would only exist on paper and I'd be taking their "salaries" and converting them into literal cash. no office/100% remote so nosy investors could only meet with me or one of my friends to pose as various other senior employees

probably hire some crappy offshore shop to build a "proof of concept" app just to keep up the illusion for a year or so before vanishing forever

outsource the development and maintenance of the main thing the startup is based on to a friend who does absolutely nothing despite collecting pay for ten years and then when this finally is untenable just throw my hands up in the air and go "WELL I GUESS I'M DUMB LOL"
