Early-stage business theater and fantasy are a culture epidemic.
These days everyone is an entrepreneur. It is akin to the ubiquitous teenage ambition of the 1980’s to become a rap recording artist. Relatively few entrepreneurs will complete the journey out of the early ‘experimental’ stage and into growth mode. Most spin relentlessly, expending resources and drawing in people & energy in the process. In fact, there is no appreciable likelihood of success reported today vs 30 years ago, despite dramatic growth in resourcing of all types. As a result, investment made in the early-stage frequently offer extraordinarily low returns on investment. Economic progress & innovation are hindered.
