Today on StartupSmart, we take a look at the career of Steve Jobs, who yesterday stood down as CEO of Apple.
Jobs is arguably the defining entrepreneur of his generation, lauded for bringing creativity and focus back to a business that nearly went under in 1996.
But Jobs has endured some sticky moments as well as the well-publicised highs. Today, we look at 10 lessons that start-ups can take from Jobs’ astonishing career.
Elsewhere, we chat to Google Maps founder Lars Rasmussen about the state of Aussie start-ups, Niki Scevak has some advice on the advice-givers and mentor Philip Alexander explains joint venture arrangements.
