I've heard that it is almost impossible to build a startup among friends because a command structure or organization structure is hard to solidify. Everybody wants to be a commander but you cannot have more than 1 captain on 1 ship.
Basically what I've learned from other people is that no matter how many commanders you have, there must be 1 supreme commander to make the final decision. This is theoretical to me. Is it unwise to build a startup with friends? Even if you can establish a chain of command?
