Let’s Focus on The Problem
Hi, DMSers. Yesterday we started our discussion about The Problem — Successful entrepreneurs tend to focus on fixing problems that exist in the fields they are truly passionate about. That’s what you’ll start doing with Homework 1.
I’m sharing two articles to help with this brainstorming task:
- Yesterday’s New York Times ran this article, Student-Built Apps Teach Colleges a Thing or Two. Classic case of identifying and focusing on The Problem.
- I showed, Don’t Just Start a Business, Solve a Problem, from Entrepreneur in class. Good quick read for an overview of the notion of The Problem.
If you find interesting articles on this topic, please share them with the rest of the class via the comments section below.
Those of you on Twitter might consider following me (@DebraJChico). I often share resources about entrepreneurial journalism via that channel.
Have a safe and restful Labor Day weekend.
