Episode Description

The buzz: Startup fever. Whoosh! The sound of start-ups roaring out of the gate with energy, commitment, passion. Thud! The sound of 90% of startups failing. Did they misread the market, run out of cash, choose the wrong team? There must be a way to boost the hit rate and spread the wealth of entrepreneurial spirit beyond Silicon Valley, India and Israel, but how? The experts speak. Suraj Sudji, SAP Startup Focus: “Startup companies need early planetary alignment because there are so many things that can go wrong.” (Jeff Bezos). Prof. Rajeev Srinivasan, India Intellectual Property Rights: “From experience, I found that the main reason for entrepreneurial failure is the market: market failure, marketing capability, and distribution reach." Lakshman Pachineela Seshadri, SAP: “Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship...the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.” (Peter F. Drucker). Join us for Why Do So Many Start-ups Fail?

The pace of technological advance is constantly increasing and puts pressure on companies to be more effective in innovation.

At the same time, most businesses do not fully leverage the innovation potential of their employees and partners, due to a lack of communication – and ideas that are still kept in organizational silos.
