One of the most common failures I see in startups is lack of FOCUS. Unfocused entrepreneurs mostly talk with pride that their new technology will generate multiple innovative 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 competition.

Despite the rush in every academic institution to offer more courses on entrepreneurship, I still haven’t found it to be something you can learn in school. Of course, you can pick up the basic principles this way, but the problem is that the practical rules for success are changing so fast that no academic can keep up. The best thing you can learn in school is how to learn.

The magnate entrepreneurs I have met,interviewed and worked with over the years all seem to share that passion for learning, and they see rapid market change not as a problem, but as ... Read more comment(s)
