On tech startups and the Economist – Daniel Isenberg

The Economist’s Schumpeter column, online, publishes this critical comment on its recent special report.

Isenberg’s considered and well-reasoned critique argues that the Economist overstates any distinction between “tech startups” and other forms – “Today, every business venture, entrepreneurial or otherwise, requires technology to be competitive, whether it is diamond trading, transportation, construction, or energy.”

He also argues that there is a distinction between entrepreneurship and startups.

A valuable read if you enjoyed the original report or if you have an interest in technology, startups or entrepreneurship.

The original report is here.

Isenberg’s response is here.
