Innovation is Action. So Get Up, Get Out, and just go be an Entrepreneur.

Innovation is Action. So Get Up, Get Out, and just go be an Entrepreneur. After talking with hundreds of startup teams around the world, from the ones we are accelerating at 1871 in Chicago to a new stealth startup in India, I have found that, sometimes the best advice is to tell them to stop meeting so often at their favorite cafe/coffee shop, and instead, get out there and  work on the actual startup idea!  Waiting until everything is “just right”  can be a entrepreneurial trap. In reality, is OK to shift and pivot along the way–some of the most successful startups have. A great Sketchbook video from our friends at Kauffman Foundation puts this into a simple perspective…”just go be an entrepreneur”. Enjoy!

    The video is what all begging Entrepreneurs should watch if they have a innovated idea. Also I strongly agree with there is too much talk instead of action.
