The growth of the Internet has

changed small startups to some

of the most influential

companies in the world.

Behind these companies are more

often than not young visionary

entrepreneurs who grew up with

the Internet and now seem best

positioned to direct the future

of the web.

Who are these new entrepreneurs

and what drives them?

A really great founder seems to

be building a groundswell even

if there is nothing there, and

so he in effect is a magician.

He creates something from


You are always kind of just on

the edge of your comfort zone

and everything you are doing is

basically something you are just

barely qualified for or not

qualified for, it is like

jumping off a cliff and having

to build your own parachute

I think an entrepreneur, that is

A difficult one, how do you

define an entrepreneur. I think

an entrepreneur is a person who

dares to have a dream that not

that many people have and even

more importantly dares to chase

it with their money where their

mouth is and their time and

their career and dares to take

the risk to going out there to

realize that vision.

Entrepreneurs are some of the

craziest people you ever meet,

they are people who have a dream

or an idea, something that keeps

them awake at night and they get

the opportunity to hopefully

solve that problem or do

something about it.

So the best entrepreneurs are

often either solving their own

problems or solving some huge

things and they can really

Entrepreneurship at the moment

is kind of like the new smoking,

it's cool to be creative and it

is cool to be making something

and I just love that energy.

Over the last couple of years

the cost of starting

a web-based startup has

decreased dramatically.

I think over the last couple

Of years it has changed

dramatically. If you think back

to the turn of the century,

two thousand, what you had

was very large companies often

creating websites like Yahoo,

AOL, these were much bigger

companies creating new kind of

products on the internet.

With the crash those went away

but the Internet didn't go away

and what actually happens was

that new initiative, young

innovators came along looked

at the web and said we can do

Ten years ago if you wanted to

start-up a company you got to

pay a lawyer to tell you weather

you should do a "C" Corp or

a "LLC". Bam, that is a Google

search, done, free, in like five

minutes. You know by that time

you would not even gone past the

lawyer secretary ten years ago.

It is really interesting to see

What entrepreneurs will look

like ten years from now. Before

they were managers, maybe little

engineering but now they are

young tech people and hackers

Anybody now with a laptop

and a Wi-Fi connection

can build anything

Today a lot of people will be

able to start companies who

never could have before. This

applies specially to younger

people. They are willing to put

in the long, unpaid hours

and have nothing to loose.

As you get older you get certain

ways and certain patterns and

you recognize them and behave in

certain way but I think that the

young entrepreneurs see things

differently in a way that is often

times refreshing and therefore


One of the great benefits of

starting young in business is

that you have less to lose than

you know, once you have four

kids and something where you

have to re-mortgage your house

in order to finance your

company, that is a bigger risk

to take then if you come

straight out of university and

all you kind of have to choose

between is either you take up
