Our economy has changed. I see three significant trends.
A significant number of youngsters, freshly out of school, want to become entrepreneurs. Corporate is not attractive, and the best talents no longer dream of corporate life. That is creating a long-term issue for corporations, but that’s another topic.
Likewise, the startup dream is also appealing to older, more experienced folks looking for a new adventure.
Finally, we have a growing trend toward the knowledge economy and learning marketplaces. People are sharing and selling what they know and love, we call it “Passion Economy”. Think Udemy, Patreon, and the likes.
We have an influx of entrepreneurs wannabees, building startups, hoping to join the entrepreneur movement, like never before.
However, the “startup financing model” has not changed much and is not adapted to this new trend.
