Discussion Topic: “Entrepreneurship on a Burning Platform”
Sometimes the dumbest ideas are great ones and the greatest ideas are short-lived. As an entrepreneur, it is not always enough to discover the “next big thing.”  Often, successful entrepreneurs capitalize on timing, change and competitive weakness in order to build great businesses.
