So, you’ve heard about entrepreneurship…
Do you realize that technology is important and powers pretty much everything you do?
Do you still have questions like, “What IS tech entrepreneurship?” and “Why should I care?”
Well lucky for you, today, we’re going to dive into what being a tech entrepreneur entails, why you should consider it, and ultimately help you determine whether it’s the path for you.
What is a tech entrepreneur?
A basic definition of a tech entrepreneur is someone who executes their ideas and strategy using technology.
Now, you’re not basic by any means, so let’s further explain this using our preferred definition introduced by Peter Thiel in Zero to One:
Tech is not merely about computers and the world is not all about bits but rather anything that is an improvement, whether in bits or atoms. No, this statement does not mean that we live in the Matrix.
Zero to One, the modern entrepreneur’s bible covers entrepreneurship ideas succinctly and we highly recommend adding it to your level-up bookshelf.
Think of the platforms you use and the problems they solve:
Facebook, Uber, Google, Spotify, and Apple to name a few. Enhancing community, delivery, information, music, phones, and laptops — it’s hard to imagine life without them today.
Tesla and AirB&B could also be considered tech companies.
The people behind these companies are disrupters, innovators, revolutionaries, and change-makers.
They capitalized on their ideas using technology.
Technology brings the future here quicker.
These entrepreneurs went from zero to one.
Going from 0 → 1 is technological progress, as opposed to globalization, which is going from 1 → n.
Take a look at the below graph for a visual representation of what that means.
0 → 1: doing something that’s never been done before; entirely new; invention (example: the iPhone (Apple) )
1 → n: doing something that’s already been done before; copying; globalization (example: other smartphone brands (Sony) )
Safe to say, we think technology is an industry worth looking into.
The economic impact of the U.S. tech industry alone in 2020 was estimated to be $2.0 trillion — representing 10.5% of the national economy. With 585,000 tech business establishments in the U.S., that number will keep growing.
So, do you want a slice of the $2.0 trillion pie? You can join us to transform the realm of tech one company at a time.
