What I don’t get about hipster entrepreneurs.

How to not change the world.

One

I don’t get when hipsters say they “hated working for others” but then can’t wait to employ others to work for them.

Two

I don’t get when hipsters set out to “change the world” but then come up with coffee, beer or socks.

Three

Why do you want to do it alone?

Source of this non-sense: A documentary about anti-capitalism hipsters who started their own business. Asked about their mission they said they wanted to get rich…

Let’s give it some uplift.

First, I don’t think these entrepreneurs will get far unless they regard their ex-employers as anti-rolemodels and want to do it better instead.

Second, nothing wrong with a good espresso, but creativity and intelligence should be used to solve relevant problems.

Third, big problems are best solved in small groups. Why don’t we do it together?
