They believe they can predict the future, rather than try to create a future with their customers. #startup #often #fail #because #founders #investors #neglect #look #before #they #surging #forward #plan #taking #time #realize #base #assumption #business #wrong #believe #can #predict #future #create #customers #shikharghosh #professor #harvardbusinessschool

The big challenge right now is to diversify the range of options we have when it comes to creating experiences for our users. We believe that investigating hardware will give us those options. #big #challenge #right #now #diversify #range #options #we #comes #creating #experiences #our #users #we #believe #investigating #hardware #give #options #gabenewell #cofounder #valve #videos #games #sowtware #entrepreneur #creative #people...

We're going to get to the point where virtual reality is indistinguishable from reality itself. And much sooner than that, we're going to have the visual side indistinguishable from reality.

Entrepreneurs look at business differently, they're out-of-the-box thinkers and blue-sky dreamers who see possibilities where others don't.

If you can convince people that what they will be doing will make the world a better place, they're more likely to join. I believe this is the same for a startup and the same as being acquired by PayPal.

My passion is to help entrepreneurs create "the next big thing". It's easier now than ever to start a new venture and harder than ever to build a durable company. There is more capital, entrepreneurs are more discerning, more demanding and that all makes for more efficient, more effective markets. #passion #help #entrepreneurs #create #next #big #thing #easier #now #ever #new #venture #harder #ever #build #durable #company #capital #entrepreneurs #discerning #demanding #makes #efficient #effective #markets #johndoerr #partner #kleinerperkins #investor
