Lessons from the Secret History of Silicon Valley for Singapore

Just watched the Secret History of Silicon Valley talk by Steve Blank and this slide just hit me. This is the exact thing we need to emphasise to build a commercial approach to university or government research. And yet, most TTOs in Singapore lose their focus and try to build their own ecosystems and framework houses. Lots of these are organic and begin from encouraging the future to grow.

I also like the end of his talk where he basically asks if history will repeat itself. I wonder what event will accelerate Singapore’s research and then a wave of entrepreneurial activity in the future?
