Sunday starts by reading a Facebook status of a friend. He argues that startups, especially tech startups, receive so much attention and resources. So many people talk about and commit to make some apps, and build some portals and social networks. So many big amounts of dollars are raised and released. However, the return of those noises is somewhat small and disappointed. In my friend’s opinion, many tech startups are day dreamers. In light of this, he calls for a proper awareness of the other business fields including life science, health care, and agriculture. The friend is correct. A distinctive difference between startup and small business, which is often advocated by tech startup supporters, is disruptiveness. That is, a tech startup is possible to growth dramatically – thus its valuation should be multi-million dollars. While disruption is critical to any high-growth business, advocating that only tech startup can be disruptive is misleading. Reasoning is as follows. 1) No matter what you are doing, a startup or a small business, what you really need is entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is a spirit and perhaps a kind of energy. An entrepreneur is person (a) pursuing creation of new value, (b) accepting uncertainties while trying to manage risks, and (c) being able to aware of opportunity and ready for a tedious and long process of transforming the opportunity into performance. 2) If disruption is such important then the question is: where is the disruption come from? The source of disruption is innovation capacity of (a) providing solutions, (b) manufacturing new-value-created products and services, and (c) designing and implementing method of improving competitiveness. An example. A small box of 100grprocessed salt (called Muối Ô mai) costs US$0.50. 50 cent is a small amount of money. But it is noteworthy that 1,000gr of salt cost less than such amount. A lot of people love having the processed salt with fresh fruits, including watermelon, grapefruit, guava, and pipe apple. Making the processed salt perhaps is simple. The innovative idea of making such processed salt is that matters. Is it worth to consider a business that generate more than 100 times margin as a disruptive startup? 3) Last but not least, the term of “tech startup” should be discussed. “Tech” definitely covers more than information technology and the internet. Even when the term is attached to software, application, and internet one can see tech-based businesses in various disciplines.
