We’ve all read the stats and they’re not great! 50% of small businesses don’t make it to 5 years. 90% of tech startups will fail. Yet many new to the workforce and seasoned corporate professionals will yearn to take the plunge dreaming of entrepreneurship. Many will waste years in a corporation in a holding pattern instead of using the time in a corporation learning how to build one. Did you know that the average age of most successful entrepreneurs is 40 with at least 6 years industry experience? What if instead of pushing people to become entrepreneurs first, we enabled professionals to be better corporate entrepreneurs’ aka intrapreneurs – would the results be more successful entrepreneurs?
