Fri, 16 Jan 2015 06:26:29 +0000I think that the focus shouldn't just be digitization but secure digitization. Too often e-tailers overlook that. Excellent post.

Sat, 13 Oct 2012 08:15:10 +0000Great Post. The rationale here is that it is way cheaper to build it yourself than it is to acquire a startups. The flaw with this is clearly that Innovation cant be purchased by hiring a few guys; there needs to be an exceptional skill set combined with entrepreneurial energy to truly make something pathbreaking, or atleast awesome. It is no secret that in many such cases, the development of what is being sought to be cloned fails miserably and is eventually given up on; while the startup ends up going bust. *Acqui-hire/Acquisitions is one of the cornerstones of the innovation eco-system--> Creates Second time entrepreneurs(read angels) with money, sets an example to others that even partial success is rewarded handsomely amongst others. Its Changing but the ecosytem is still full of bricks and mortars companies who'll never pay much for a couple of guys in tees +a shiny product they built.
Fri, 12 Oct 2012 04:37:54 +0000+1 Awesome post Santosh...and I completely agree with it. I have gone through this myself...and I do understand the pain that is involved for an entrepreneur when such a thing happens... I am glad you wrote this...
Thu, 11 Oct 2012 09:49:57 +0000You are right, the concept of pivot in learn startup is I think related to turing the unexpected into the profitable. You might have read it already but, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, by Peter Druker (http://www.amazon.com/Innovation-Entrepreneurship-Peter-F-Drucker/dp/0060851139) has some very good points on sources of innovation and how entrepreneurs should take those into account. In the one source is - something which is working without you thinking about it i.e unusual success or failure could take you on a different path. Its like always find a right solution that fits the right market. What I really liked in this article is the analogy given to effectual entrepreneurs i.e of Columbus - discovering a new world; very true and I guess that excitement is what keeps us going out into the unknown. Imagine a world where everything is known, predicted; how depressing that would be :)
Thu, 11 Oct 2012 09:31:55 +0000Hi Atul, Yes, spot on! The theme of being able to leverage resources and partners that are available, accessible, real, affordable loss principle, is something that Lean Startup encourages entrepreneurs to do. What you might want to consider is the papers central argument - turning the unexpected into the profitable. As mentioned that's at the heart of the entrepreneurial thinking. Is that just baloney? Or do entrepreneurs discipline their thinking along this pattern? Thanks for taking time to read the paper and leave me a comment. Best regards, Santosh.
Thu, 11 Oct 2012 09:27:40 +0000Hi Santosh, If you are serious about pursuing this path then you should do a 10 day course on Vipassana(http://www.globalpagoda.org/what-is-vipassana). I have done it twice and can say it from my experience that this is one of the most scientific way of doing meditation. Its the same meditation technique taught by The Buddha. Check this link on how to learn Vipassana - http://www.globalpagoda.org/how-to-learn-vipassana and To register yourself for a ten-day course, please check http://www.dhamma.org and choose a center near you. All the best! Regards, Atul.
Thu, 11 Oct 2012 09:20:40 +0000Great article! thanks for sharing it Santosh! I think this story matches with recent lean startup movement along with customer development which emphasizes on going out and talking to customers than creating a solid business plan and product with your assumptions . I would go ahead and claim that lean startup is way of building products with effectual thinking. It gives us set of guidelines to act and think effectually which are not mentioned in this article. Does that makes sense?

Tue, 31 Jul 2012 09:03:43 +0000Hi Rohit, Thanks for the comment! I've recently found another similar story from my personal network. I had a relative visiting from Cyprus who said pretty much the very same thing - his 4 yr-old uses his tablet and when on the desktop, reaches out for the desktop screen in the same way as he would for the screen of the tablet. He literally *wanted* to touch and drag stuff and navigate around and could not do so!
Wed, 11 Jul 2012 12:13:59 +0000My son uses my iphone and my ipad, primarily to watch youtube and play his games. His first reaction on seeing any bright surface (including TV, laptop screen, older non-touch phones) is to touch the screen and try to drap things around.
