For startups, is it Ideas or Execution that matters most?
There is an ongoing debate in Silicon Valley and the startup world more broadly about how important ideas versus execution are. While most sensible people agree that you need both, the implications of the conversation are significant: if every startup is just expected to iterate into good ideas, then funding follows a different path than if people believe in the compelling vision of a founder.
TED is a community of ideas and so might provide a different space to engage in this conversation.
