We’ve written before on the role the entrepreneur plays as history-maker, and how their primary job is to analyze problems and synthesize new solutions from a combination of all available options in front of them. To introduce this idea, and how it exists historically as a constant cycle, to the participants, we include a brief series in the history module titled, “Everything is a Remix.”
The series focuses on how almost everything in the realms of culture and innovation come from “remixing” standing products (both physical and cultural) into new combinations. This helps hit home the fact that one need not be a purely new thinker in order to do something innovative. Many of the best innovations on the market (e.g., smart phones) are just remixes and combinations of existing products.
