The Startup Illusion

The Startup Illusion | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Having an idea is easy; being able to make it into something profitable is what separates the failures and the success stories. As a student, you have the opportunity to take advantage of an enormous amount of collective experience to help you build your business — in the future.

In short, if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, see through the veil. I am acutely aware of both the potential for failure and the chance of success, so heed my warning; the startup game is rigged. Hedge your bets and stay in school, but don’t ever stop working toward transforming your dreams of entrepreneurial success into a reality". By Noah Benesch

“El próximo Steve Jobs podría ser una mujer”

“El próximo Steve Jobs podría ser una mujer” | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
“¿Quieres pasarte el resto de tu vida vendiendo agua con azúcar, o quieres cambiar el mundo?”. Steve Jobs, el fundador de Apple, era un gran aficionado a las frases lapidarias, y con esta convenció al entonces presidente de Pepsi para que dejara su trabajo y le ayudara a gestionar su compañía. John Sculley decidió que ya no quería seguir vendiendo agua azucarada, y durante su presidencia (1983-1993) consiguió que Apple pasara de facturar 800 a 8.000 millones de dólares (de 640 a 6.400 millones de euros) pero, también, que Steve Jobs fuera despedido, y por esta circunstancia es tristemente recordado en el mundo de los negocios en Silicon Valley.

Entrepreneurs Need A New Adaptive Innovator Mindset

Entrepreneurs Need A New Adaptive Innovator Mindset | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
One of the business ironies that many entrepreneurs have learned the hard way in the past is that ideas which are truly disruptive carry the highest risk of failure, take the longest to gain traction, and thus are the least likely to get external funding. So some entrepreneurs stick with incremental solutions, avoiding more transformational or adaptive solutions implying disruptive change.

In the past, only a few entrepreneurs, like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, maintained the passion, patience, and determination to accomplish disruptive change in the marketplace. Today with the growing number of disruptive technologies available, like cloud computing, wireless sensors, Big Data, and mobile devices, an incremental solutions mindset is no longer enough to win.

David Bembry's curator insight, February 26, 2014 11:15 AM

I simply like to say that "I'm too stupid to quit!" I've operated with no cheering section or other support for over 15 years while I raise kids alone. I do what I do because I'm compelled to do it and don't see anything as a failure. Afterall, nothing is promised in life. Not even life itself. It's all about the adventure and just going for it. That alone keeps me content. Your best is all you've got in this life. Sometimes it'll be enough, other times it won't. It's just life. No worries!
