Go Solve Real Problems!

by takingpitches

On the theme about the limits of the “quick and easy” startup meme is from a recent lecture by Mark Suster.  He reminds that you still need to focus on a big problem.  Doing something is not enough; there is still value in finding a big target at which to direct your energy to…

Suster’s advice:

“How many location-based companies can you have?

When you’re 24, restaurants and bars are all you know.

[But as an entrepreneur you should] focus on large disruptive industries, like financial services, healthcare/medicare, energy, or the government. That’s where the money is spent in this country.

The auto industry is $1.6 trillion per year. And you want to f*ck around with bars and restaurants?!

Go solve real problems!”
