Ramen Profitable

Ramen Profitable: A good term to know.  Blend got ramen profitable after about a year.

Ramen profitability is […] a startup that becomes profitable after 2 months, even though its revenues are only $3000 a month, because the only employees are a couple 25 year old founders who can live on practically nothing. Revenues of $3000 a month do not mean the company has succeeded, or even found a path to success. But the ramen profitable startup does share something with the one that’s profitable in the traditional way: they don’t need to raise money to survive.
