The technology industry has grown exponentially in the last several decades, its primary impetus being entrepreneurship. The innovation, prescience, and proactive mentality of entrepreneurs have consistently pushed the envelope, fostering products and services that continually improve upon earlier renditions.
Bill Gates anticipated the personal computer’s emerging importance at a time when it remained largely undeveloped; his creation of Microsoft Corporation has made him one of the world’s most famous innovators. Despite momentary struggles in finding his company’s niche, Steve Jobs eventually made Apple, Inc., into one of the world’s strongest brands.
It can be easy to look at the successes of these entrepreneurs and discount the role that sheer hard work and rigorous determination play.

Entrepreneurs create dimension by asking questions about the business’ identity: what it does, why it does it, and why it does it better than the competition.
