The Great Transition: The Startup Revolution

In one of my recent posts (here) I discussed how we have passed a tipping point, which in retrospect, will be looked at as a pivotal time in the history of humanity that was driven by the pace of technological innovation.

Last week I came by a series of blog posts by Compass.io founders discussing this exact subject and I will dare say that the posts were the most thought-provoking reads I have had in many years. Here they are. Do yourself a favor and take the time to read them!
