Founders are not entrepreneurs

(This is the first article in a series about what I learned from my year in startups, after transitioning from a 15+ year career in the public sector.)

There’s a new trend among startup accelerators, investors, and Silicon Valley to call what they do “supporting entrepreneurship” and “entrepreneurial development.” I hate this almost as much as I hate them calling themselves “job creators” or talking about their company “culture.”
