Ethan Mollick is a professor of entrepreneurship at Wharton, a former founder and author of the book, The Unicorn’s Shadow. Readers of the Thoughts in Between newsletter may also recognise him as the curator of perhaps the world’s most interesting Twitter feed. I think I link to Ethan more than to anyone else. In this conversation, we dive deeply into what the academic literature tells us about entrepreneurship. It’s the first time either of us have ever met, so during the conversation, I share a little bit about our methodology for company creation at Entrepreneur First and we discuss both how it contradicts and complements the literature. We also discuss a game-like simulation of entrepreneurship that Ethan has created, which I recommend you check out.
