Stephen Wolfram answers questions from his viewers about business and innovation as part of an unscripted livestream series, also available on YouTube here: https://wolfr.am/youtube-sw-business-qa
Questions include: What company would you start today if you grew up during these times? - How much do you think your high scores in school/college influence your employees or your new employees? - When do you decide to release a product, assuming that you never feel like something is ever completely "done" or "perfect" - How would someone who picked an education that didn't provide worthwhile skills and connections catch up? - You value culture and flexibility why do you need to grow your team? Is it just not possible to outsource (via open source) a large amount of work to the people? - What business principles are of the greatest utility yet are never addressed in university programs or courses? - Do you think the current trend of high-value tech IPOs is reminiscent of the dot-com bubble of the late 1990s? - What education do you need to receive to be able to research markets and design products if you are more from a technical side of things? - Is it difficult to fire people? - Do you think that with increasing power of monopolies, small tech start ups will still be able to held up? - Is publicity magic, does it just happen, or is it well thought out some way? - Are there any planned "wolfram ventures" startups that people can join and work for equity? - Do you use version control in your company?
