With the Startup – Rockband comparison nicely described, here’s a reason that gets too little notice in benefits of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is an excuse to talk to someone. I remember hearing Jeff Pulver remark that much social networking activity comes from loneliness. While entrepreneurship is not at all the same as social networking, one of the great things about it is the ability to meet new people and form a team. Or at least exchange ideas.
Now, this alone isn’t enough of a reason to start a company, but it is overlooked. As I look back over this year, a lot of the people I know now I hadn’t met before embarking on Chatfe — and I never would have met them had I stayed in a corporate role. When I have time I’ll write about some of them here.
