One of the most interesting phenomenon I observe in the startup ecosystem is that everyone assumes startups need help – a lot of help. Therefore everyone is offering mentorship, training, advising, sharing (paid or pro bono), and of course a lot of grants too… Is this right? Advertisements

昨天有朋友問我，“什麼是加速器？” 在現今全球創業潮底下，就算對創新(innovation)、創業(startup/entrepreneurship)沒什麼興趣的人，都很大機會有聽過incubation, accelerator, co-working space, hackathon, 創業比賽，等等等等。
這個議題在我一開始踏進創業圈已經有寫了。 也是這個不倫不類的blog的第一篇 http://wp.me/p6eIlx-9，之後也有提到 http://wp.me/p6eIlx-R。 我承認我也有批評過一些創業比賽的評判 http://wp.me/p6eIlx-75。
