New Generation Of Entrepreneurs Not Driven By Money Alone

from the good-for-them dept

Michael Clouser writes “The number of college entrepreneurs is growing, but they are driven by something different, rather, they see technology as a hobby, and starting companies as self-satisfaction, rather than to make a bunch of money. Also, the number of college entrepreneurship courses continues to rise, despite the bubble burst.” While I think it’s great to hear stories suggesting more people are starting companies for the love of what they’re doing, rather than simply the economic opportunity, these things do tend to go in a cycle. The reason people claim they’re starting companies to do what they love is because not too many startups have been cashing out over the past few years. Should the cashing out part pick up some more, and you can bet that the quick startup flippers will be back in no time.
