Walk Before You Run

Over here at The Startup Factory, Dave and I share thoughts and advice many, many times per day.  We have our current crop of 4 companies, plus the 22 companies from prior cohorts.  In addition to those, we have 5-8 founder/entrepreneur/startup companies come visit for Open Office Hours every other Thursday.

(Sign up with joseph@thestartupfactory.co if interested.  The 1/2 hour slots are truly open to anyone to talk about anything.)

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article for INC.com titled, “To Build the Next Big Thing, Walk Before You Run“.

The gist is that there are incremental ideas and earth-moving ideas.  I don’t mind the incremental approach and a key there is to follow the trends (technology or other).
