Great write up Matt, thank you! At the core (ambition) nothing has really changed ("There are 62 McLarens in the world and I WILL own one." — Elon Musk), rather the most "gwitty" (grit+wit) and highly ambitious adopters of the latest technology (entrepreneurship) are first and foremost honest with themselves as to what their personal interests are* and have quickly mastered and understood how the technology works**: “I’d say the real payoff is the sense of satisfcation of having created a company that I SOLD.” — Elon Musk (http://RMentrepreneur.fyi.to/ElonMusk). The best mentors and accelerators help entrepreneurs find their compelling WHY, their personal interest (McLaren F1) BEFORE they get out of the building.
