This Week’s Must-Read Articles for Entrepreneurs

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-11-10

Each week we scour the web for insightful articles to share with the Founder Institute network.

This week's top articles include tips for interviewing customers; how to wire the Silicon Valley mindset into your community; why only fools write code first, and much more.

 Check out our must read articles for the week of November 3 - November 10:

Why Your Innovation Contest Won't Work
Innovation is the process of idea management – so, yes, you need great ideas to innovate, but that is only part of it.  You also need to be able to select ideas.  Once you’ve done that, you need the ability to execute them.  While all this is going on, you have to keep people inside your organization enthusiastic about the ideas.  And at the end of all of this, you have to get your great new idea to spread.  To innovate, you need to be good at all of these things.
