Stranger things are happening in the Valley (... what episode are you on?). Steve Blank did an extensive write-up on CEOs with 'bad behavior' and why they can continue to lead a company: that must-read (including Blank's article on what to do about it) might help you prevent strange things from happening in the future. Another strange thing is the case of Zenefits: Buzzfeed reports on this unicorn startup that got fined for misleading its investors (and yes, their CEO is on Blank's list).

What strange things did your startup go through this year? Care to share anonymously? Write it down, and hit submit.

Happy Halloween,
