Do  Entrepreneurs Need An Alternative Form Of Capitalism ?

In my view, entrepreneurship has always been the ultimate embodiment of capitalism, and quite synonymous with free enterprise.

They are looking for a business model that makes the world a better place more...

Great Entrepreneur Vs Great Inventor or Technologist

Great Entrepreneur Vs Great Inventor or Technologist

In my experience, inventors and technologists aren’t interested or aren’t very good at building a business, and entrepreneurs aren’t usually good scientists.

Historically, it’s also not more...

Why Startups Need Focus To Get Investors Quickly

One of the most common failures I see in startups is lack of focus. Unfocused entrepreneurs boast that their new technology will generate multiple disruptive products for consumers as well as enterprises around the world. Investors hear this as trying to do too many things with limited resources, meaning the startup will not shine at anything, and will not survive the more...
