Dave Kashen of Quantum Leading calls for a change in startup culture:
"In the startup world, thousands of entrepreneurs focus their ingenuity on finding ways to make millions of dollars.
They look for market inefficiencies and focus on questions like: “Will consumers pay for this?” without asking “Will this make people’s lives meaningfully better?”
It’s not that we shouldn’t try to make money, it’s just that money should be merely one of many factors we strive for, and it’s played far too central a role for far too long.
So, if maximizing economic output fails to achieve the goal of maximized well-being, what might be an alternative hypothesis worth testing?"
