I came across this
article recently covering a session at TechCrunch Disrupt.
During this session, American venture capitalist Jim Goetz complains that very few startups focus on building products for businesses. Most of them pay attention to consumers. However, Goetz pointed out that twice as many "enterprise" startups have become billion dollar companies themselves as compared to "consumer" startups.
Goetz explained that the advent of cloud computing offers more opportunities to compete with firms like SAP, Oracle, Cisco and EMC. These companies offer legacy solutions which don't fit today's technology.
I have the following questions: do you agree with Goetz in that the enterprise market is a good place to focus for a startup? Is this the case in Canada? What kinds of products should startups be bringing to market to help enterprises work better?
