The entrepreneurial mantra that weaves through every startup vision and recruitment effort focuses on how X product/service will change the world.
This particular passion applies whether it’s a cure for cancer, a big data application, a new messaging app, social network or dating app.
How does one truly change the world?
Or is it a phrase with no real meaning?
Even if one does change it does the change make the world better?
Better by what yardstick and whose standards?
Change isn’t always a positive.
What is your responsibility if you do change it?
In his graduation speech at USC, Larry Ellison said, “You will change the world and the world will change you.”
For better or worse, change is the only true constant.
