Budding entrepreneurs and a zillion ideas, yet only a few make it to “the unicorn league”. As Peter Thiel aptly quotes, “EVERY MOMENT IN BUSINESS happens only once. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them”. It is the learning and not emulating that makes the difference.
