There is no one skillset for a great founder. Having the ability to learn and adapt and create networks around you “while crossing uneven ground in the fog” is useful. Collective learning makes great teams. And diverse teams help solve difficult problems.
Keys to the enterprise startup:
1. Spot tech disruptions
2. Intentionally start small
3. Find asymmetries
4. Find the “mostly crazy, but still reasonable, outliers within the customer ecosystem”
5. Listen to your customers, but don’t always build what they want.
