How Do You Teach High-Tech Entrepreneurship?

Randy Komisar, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

A basic skill set covering finance, organization, transactions, strategy, and business models can be taught successfully, says Komisar. These skills are useful for engineers because they provide context about the personality and character of entrepreneurship. However, according to Komisar, having a character suited for entrepreneurship is something that cannot be taught, as being comfortable with uncertainty and ambiguity is something you either have or you don't.
