The Entrepreneur’s Fuel: Junk Food

Hardee's Monster Thick Burger

A local greasy-spoon Chinese buffet, that I affectionately refer to as “Scary Chinese,” has hosted some of my most productive entrepreneurial brainstorming sessions. I never realized how normal I was. Local Tech Wire explains that junk food is the real fuel of entrepreneurship:

It is my sincere belief that the rapidity with which an enterprise creates value is directly related to how well it stocks the company kitchen. And, the lower the nutritional value of the food choices, the greater the intellectual property produced.

I have spent time in a variety of industries: software, hardware, compression technology, storage technology, outsourced manufacturing and digital media. What do they have in common?

They all run on junk food.
