“To invent, you just need a good imagination and a pile of junk.”
— Thomas Edison
Getting in touch with your inner disruptor
Want to come up with funky new business ideas? Dirty your hands like Dyson, Eberhard and Tarpenning.
We study our readers, so we know some things about you. We know you want to be an innovator, delivering new products and services and finding novel solutions to problems. And you’re probably a nethead, too. You rely on the internet for fast, frictionless access to business resources. Did you ever consider that those two statements might be contradictory?
Successful startups are different. That’s what enables them to win customers from hidebound competitors, or open up new markets where no-one bothered to look before. Management gurus agree that the best growth hack of all is a ‘disruptive business model’… but they don’t give much advice about where to start looking for one.
