When there are fundamental shifts in the world, smart people get busy building the future. This is the time for nimble entrepreneurs to build solutions to new problems.
However, this opportunity requires entrepreneurs to:
- Seize the Disruption: We are experiencing the single largest global disruption since World War 2, which ended 75 years ago. Entire industries are being upended and consumer needs are changing on an almost daily basis. Only the entrepreneurs that can adapt, take advantage of available talent, and design businesses for where the world is going (not where it is now) will be successful.
- Move Quickly: When the market is in flux, established companies move slowly to regroup and plot out their future. This creates an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs, but only if they are decisive and move quickly. Following a focused process to test, collect feedback, and iterate swiftly is critical.
- Think Globally: If this virus has taught us anything, it is that we live in a global society. The masses are now starting to understand that our global health, finances, job market, and day to day life are collectively intertwined. Entrepreneurs that don’t view their business without borders are going to be left behind.
