I’m going to an event tomorrow where there will be a lot of entrepreneurship researchers and academics and I’m feeling irritated by how inane, arcane and irrelevant most of their research questions are.
God…so many financial resources and brain cycles spent researching topics that will not hardly move the needle on anything important — and which essentially completely miss what’s most important:
How to maximize the economic growth and the job growth of the global economy with powerful new products and services that make everyone’s life more good, true and beautiful.
I’m looking forward to laying down a new paradigm of entrepreneurship and innovation at the level of the startup, the level of the startup ecosystem and the level of the global macro economic system. Most of the hard thinking is done, for me now, it’s all about the grind of developing business systems and writing.
And then over the next few years aligning an abundance of resources to establish a feedback loop between cutting edge theory and cutting edge practice.
As of January 1st, 2016, my writing on Entrepreneurship and Innovation has now become my #1 priority…and I’m Charged Up like Drake, ready to go Back to Back.
P.S. (In case I offend any academics, let’s have a discussion where you try to convince me your research is relevant and I try to convince you to pursue a different research question).
