The book has a nice intro by Job Nijs. “For several consecutive years, we have seen a steady growth in the number of people who had the guts to quit their day jobs and pursue their dreams to create something new: something that was not there before that creates value for customers ".
In an ever faster changing world, startups provide the speed and flexibility needed to find new solutions to social issues - from climate change to an aging population. New emerging technologies
offer opportunities for the introduction of new solutions and new business models. Startups are not held back by the organizational processes designed for execution. Instead, they explore new possibilities. They are not limited by already existing, outdated ICT infrastructure; they code from scratch. Perhaps most importantly, they are all not bound by "that won't work in our industry" or "we" tried that rather "experience culture and are driven by a" can-do "and" I'll show you how "mentality that replaces it. This is why it is so rewarding to work with and for startups.
