Best Quotes!

Posted in Software, SouthCombinator by Streema on 07/06/2010
Here are some of the best quotes I’ve included in my work, hope you enjoy them.

Between 1980 and 2005, virtually all net new jobs created in the U.S. were created by firms that were 5 years old or less.

Robert Litan, Kauffman Foundation’s Research Director
Start-Ups, Not Bailouts”, Thomas Friedman, April 2010.

The Web is an incredible democratizer. A small company can look as large as a big company and be as accessible as a big company on the Web. Big companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars building their distribution channels. And the Web is going to completely neutralize that advantage.

Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO
The Next Insanely Great Thing“, Wired Magazine, Gary Wolf, February 1996.

Argentina es la capital del emprendimiento de Latinoamérica.

Daniel Alegre, Google’s Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan.

Silicon Valley is an idea, not necessarily a real place. You can build a global internet business from anywhere.

Dave McClure, Founders Fund
Is Silicon Valley Dead?“, Dave Troy, June 2010.

Hope you liked them! btw, soon a sneak preview of the thesis will be here, please be patient. :)

    rodrigo, es cierto lo que decis, yo creo que depende como entiendas “capital del emprendimiento en la”, o sea, de acuerdo a que industria se mida, que poblacion (si es simplemente cantidad de emprendimientos o relativo a la poblacion total), y muchas otras variables que le pueden dar contexto al comentario.

    de cualquier manera, como referencia, en el el global entrepreneurship monitor 2009 ( podes comparar a ambos paises y veras que para los indices de “entrepreneurial attitues and perceptions” (pag 19) y en “entrepreneurial activity” (pag 22) estamos bastante parejos, depende cual elijas de cada uno.

    Agrego otra muy buena que encontre hoy:

    “Bigness of purpose is what separates 20th century and 21st century organizations: yesterday, we built huge corporations to do tiny, incremental things – tomorrow, we must build small organizations that can do tremendously massive things.”

    otra mas:

    “When you get this happy coincidence of high-I.Q. risk-takers in government and a society that is biased toward high-I.Q. risk-takers, you get these above-average returns as a country,” argued Mundie. “What is common to Singapore, Israel and America? They were all built by high-I.Q. risk-takers and all thrived — but only in the U.S. did it happen at a large scale and with global diversity, so you had this really rich cross-section.”

    Craig Mundie, the chief research and strategy officer of Microsoft.
