Brilliant Thoughts: A History of Entrepreneurship with Derek Lidow

View descriptionShare

Entrepreneurship has a longer history than you may think. Derek Lidow, a Princeton University professor, has found evidence of entrepreneurship from 9,000 years ago – a mini workshop used by hunter-gatherers to produce beads and pendants for trade. In 4000 BC, there was a Silicon Valley-like village that produced copper tools. 

This week, he discusses the fascinating history of entrepreneurship, as well as how entrepreneurs work collectively in swarms, simplifying control, building bedrock companies, and taking responsibility for the negative consequences of innovation.
