The State of Entrepreneurship
An article by Tim Berry came out in Entrepreneur.com that outlines my views on the state of entrepreneurship:
“Compared to when I started my first company, in 1994, things for the entrepreneur founders have gotten exponentially worse. There’s steadily more regulation, less liquidity, more difficult labor situations; things are always getting harder.”
“When I was a newbie in 1994 it was complicated, stressful and difficult. But it was significantly easier than it is today. The only reason that I could easily start a seventh and eighth company recently was that I have 15 years of experience starting and running companies under my belt. If I were like at ground zero, in today’s market, I couldn’t do what I’ve done.”
We have a vision to make starting successful companies easier. Entering our second week with a great group of Founders, I am optimistic that the Institute will achieve this aim.
