Rarely, if ever, do such cries come from real entrepreneurs:
“The lack of startup support structure is letting down an entire generation.”
“Minnesota could do more to encourage, nourish and retain new startups.”
“We don’t have to stay in Minnesota and be blasted with terrible advice and disparaging feedback.”
“The early stage startup community has nothing to give right now except for the promise of Minnesota’s future.”
These expectations…and implied entitlement…are cancerous to the heart and mind of entrepreneurship. Worse, toxic to a community. Just because you wannabe an entrepreneur — because you care and try — doesn’t mean that someone else owes you time, advice, or money.
What successful entrepreneur ever got to where they are with such a perverse view of how business works?
