Startup still happen, but it is now really to create the
technology to be bought by a corporate before sales, so for
small value. Serial entrepreneurism is the thing now. I suspect
"The Valley" is now like this: the opportunities for a new
Microsoft or Google are much smaller, at least until there is a
new disruptive technology a la Facebook.
I find this quite interesting - the "Don't fall in love with your
business" mentality is truly there. Maybe it's the romantic in
me, but I like to think that if I do ever create a company, I'd
like to be the one to run it into the ground, thank you very much!
