Entrepreneurship & Innovation: A Practitioner’s Perspective

Posted: 25 May 2011

Date Written: May 25, 2011


In the last two decades, I have founded, grown and sold two Internet software companies. I’ve tried to distill, and will describe, a process I use for coming up with ideas for new ventures. his process has much in common with, and I believe is a small-scale example of, the broader process of technological innovation described by technology/complexity economist W. Brian Arthur in his magnificent book, The Nature of Technology (Simon & Schuster, 2009). I’ll describe the small-scale and broader processes and attempt to show the link between the two.
