We recently wrote about how more and more companies are beginning to incorporate the startup culture into their businesses. Executive teams are beginning to realize the value of the scrappy startup mentality, which places more trust and accountability in employees and gives them greater control over their own destinies.
Traditionally, startups have some of the most motivated and enthusiastic employees, not only because they have more freedom to pursue their own projects, but also because they’ve been meticulously chosen through hiring processes that take their personalities into account just as much as their experiences. By practicing an open door policy and preserving the traditions that their companies were founded on, startups can remain nimble, keep their employees happy, and make advances that their industries have never even seen.
As great as the startup culture sounds, a lot of companies find it hard to actually make the transition. That’s why we’re here to offer some valuable advice from some of the men and women who have turned their fledgling ideas into a reality, building hugely successful companies from the ground up. Take a look at the SlideShare below to see what industry leaders like Biz Stone, Larry Page, and Steve Jobs have to say about startups, entrepreneurship, and chasing your dreams.
