I think it’s smart to always keep an eye on the companies that sit within incubator communities, which bring together the skills and expertise needed to grow an enterprise.
Whitney Wolfe Herd, Entrepreneur
No first-time entrepreneur has the business network of contacts needed to succeed. An incubator should be well integrated into the local business community and have a steady source of contacts and introductions.
Jay Samit, Entrepreneur
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.
Nolan Bushnell, Entrepreneur
Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.
Guy Kawasaki, Entrepreneur
Any time is a good time to start a company.
Ron Conway, Entrepreneur - Investor
Ideas are commodity. Execution of them is not.
Michael Dell, Dell Chairman and CEO
I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying.
Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder and CEO
If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.

Walt Disney, Disney Co-Founder
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister
What do you need to start a business? Three simple things: know your product better than anyone, know your customer, and have a burning desire to succeed.

When you find an idea that you just can’t stop thinking about, that’s probably a good one to pursue.
