Steve Blank: Do Dysfunctional Families Breed Entrepreneurs?

The estimated reading time for this post is 0 seconds

Steve Blank spoke about his theory that dysfunctional families breed entrepreneurs @Smart$Money in Silicon Valley.  I find this is a fascinating subject & had shared his original article many years ago with many folks.  He also spoke about how Founders often need to move on when a startup grows.  As long as everyone is clear about this fact that Founders’ skills are more about research & that building a company requires other skills, then there is nothing wrong.  His original article which is brilliant is on VentureBeat  You can find Steve @his blog & on Twitter @sgblank
