Here’s a clip worth watching: it’s Steve Blank — startup guru and author of The Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner’s Manual — explaining what startups are and how they work to the National Governors’ Association 2012 meeting. If you’re new to startups, Steve’s the guy to explain it to you. If startups are old hat to you, you’ll find it entertaining listening while you work.
My favourite nugget of wisdom lines from Steve’s presentation: On day one, disruptive innovation looks like a toy to large corporations.
Thanks to John MacRitchie for pointing this one out!
