Solve a Problem... Or Find a New One


When generating ideas for a new venture, you may take one of the following two strategies:

Start with the problem to be addressed and brainstorm potential solutions. Generate a new approach to an old problem.

Or you could start with the solution or technology to be used and brainstorm potential applications. In other words, take an old approach to a new problem.

Make relatively small investments in sequential entrepreneurial “experiments,” creating the opportunity (but not obligation) to commercialize or proceed with the result.
