What are some of the biggest pain points you see early YC companies struggling with (esp. during batches)?

Are there any unsolved problems for growing companies you wish someone would apply to solve?

The biggest problem is failing to make a product that some users love, but then thinking they will solve their problems by doing everything else well.

The second-biggest problem is probably cofounder fallouts.

Internal communication and management structure are always big problems for growing companies that I wish someone would solve.

Hey Sam, re: solving internal communication, you should checkout a non-profit called http://www.helloinnerspace.org/ funded by this group called YC ;)

Seriously though - after attending their cofounder communication workshop, we invited them to do it for our whole team. I think Innerspace is the best tool I have seen to prevent cofounder fallouts and improve internal communication.
