  • Baseline definition.
  • Ben Franklin was the ultimate entrepreneur.
  • Many examples of entrepreneurship.
  • Problem solving is at core of entrepreneurship.
  • The future is not inevitable. You get to problem solve.
  • Side benefit #1: entrepreneurship makes you happy.
  • Side benefit #2: entrepreneurship lets you work with people you love.
  • Side benefit #3: entrepreneurship can enable a short commute.
  • Plus: with commoditization of education, you need to differentiate yourself.
  • No one has any idea what he/she is doing in the beginning; don’t be fooled.
  • In the beginning you’re going to be bad at it.
  • Creativity stems from hard work. You need role models.
  • Paul Graham says: make what people want.
  • I was working on a serious startup. People “loved” it. People lie.
  • This is what real desire looks like.
  • Pick a field with people you love.
  • Suffering is everywhere.
  • Big markets.
  • Renewable energy hasn’t been ideal structurally because batteries have tended to lag generation technology.
  • Given new sensors and government programs, healthcare structure is good today for entrepreneurship.
  • One example that design solves well: pills.
  • Pill Pack is a brilliant design solution.
