Seven Fund Essay Competition 2012

It's a particularly good combination both to be good at technology and to face problems that can be solved by it, because technology changes so rapidly that formerly bad ideas often become good without anyone noticing.

Which means you can use growth like a compass to make almost every decision you face.

Redwoods Let's start with a distinction that should be obvious but is often overlooked: not every newly founded company is a startup.

Nor is it necessary for a startup to work on technology, or take venture funding, or have some sort of "exit." The only essential thing is growth.

Everything else we associate with startups follows from growth.

The most important thing that the constraints on a normal business protect it from is not competition, however, but the difficulty of coming up with new ideas.

If you open a bar in a particular neighborhood, as well as limiting your potential and protecting you from competitors, that geographic constraint also helps define your company. Whereas if you want to start a startup, you're probably going to have to think of something fairly novel.

If you write software to teach Tibetan to Hungarians, you won't have much competition.

If you write software to teach English to Chinese speakers, you'll face ferocious competition, precisely because that's such a larger prize.

If all companies were essentially similar, but some through luck or the efforts of their founders ended up growing very fast, we wouldn't need a separate word.

We could just talk about super-successful companies and less successful ones.
