Often startups fail due to lack of understanding on how to manage the balance between innovation, product development and customer development. A recent study found the high-tech startup rate peaked in the U.S. in 1982 when it represented 60% of all new firms. Today that rate has dropped by half. While there’s still an explosion of startups spreading across the country because it’s cheaper, faster and easier than ever before to launch a new company, it’s also harder than ever before to succeed and grow, especially in a way that creates jobs and wealth for many people.
Learn what modern entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs can do to succeed. Here we share tips on how to overcome common pitfalls and how to use innovation to transform ideas and products into a great business.
Thanks to John Beveridge of Rapidan Strategies and Sam Aparacio of Ringio who shared their lessons learned.
