You Must First Invent the Universe

Entrepreneurs create things, typically a product or service, right?  Well, sure -- something starts out as an idea, one or more people execute on that idea and essentially give birth to something that didn’t exist before.

Fortunately, though, even entrepreneurs don’t have to build their visions entirely from scratch.  Let’s enlist Carl Sagan to put this into perspective:

“If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the Universe.”
- Carl Sagan, Cosmos
Construction at the AZ Disruptors headquarters is wrapping up and the building is coming along beautifully.
But, I don't see this as merely the AZ Disruptors headquarters -- it’s an entrepreneurial Universe on the verge of opening with a Big Bang!  And, unlike the actual Universe, which required nearly 14 billion years to produce everything you see around you -- AZ Disruptors will provide space, talent, motivation, equipment, and mentorship on day one.  

No small feat.
"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
— Carl Sagan
