The buzz: Startup fever.
Whooosh! That’s the sound of eager start-ups roaring out of the gate with commitment and passion. Thud! That’s 90%+ of those startups failing. Why? Perhaps they misread the market, ran out of cash, chose the wrong team. How can we boost the hit rate and spread the entrepreneurial spirit beyond Silicon Valley, India, Israel, and other startup-friendly environments?
The experts speak.

Lakshman Pachineela Seshadri, SAP: “Innovators need a heavy dose of faith. They need to trust their intuition that they are working on a big idea. That faith need not be blind.” (Prof. Clayton Christensen)
