Root Access: Startup founders who say "I have a great idea but…"
November 30, 2013 12:55 pm
We all have great ideas for new startups. But there are some common things that discourage budding entrepreneurs: lack of money, fear that their idea will be stolen, the expense of validating their idea. Don Dodge (Googler, long-time startup evangelist and investor) is here to tell us how to overcome those fears and get cranking.

Patenting costs a lot, both money and time resources. It takes up to 2
years to successfully patent an idea and tens of thousands of dollars.
After that, you’ll need to defend your patent with each occasion in order
not to lose it. That costs even more time and money. Startups are usually
already successful and acquired by the time they even consider patenting
what they do. So… not really sure that it’s worthy.
Yes Ideas can be stolen. I"ve seeing this many times. Sometimes the idea
from some one is stolen before he/she starts working on it; and in another
cases, the idea is stolen and copied latter on. So, I recommend any one
patten the good idea before is stolen or copied.
To be a founder you have to take that idea and execute on it. #startup
The reality of the market i think is: if he is smarter,more creative and
more determined than the originator-it’s quite likely his implementation
will succeed anyways. Nokia/HTC/Ericsson etc all tried perfecting the
smartphone and all had similar ideas but it was Apple’s that clicked so
this is true regardless of the level you’re at(unless of course, you’re
willing to litigate like crazy and even that isn’t working for apple now
vis a vis Android).Innovation rules the market not originality.
Ok. I see something but. Why am I share my idea if I havent got a good life
and someone become a rich (or become a good life) who stolen my ideas ??
Someone the ideas for good life’s, Someone of good ideas for human…
If you haven’t executed an idea, you can’t be a founder. #DreamThenExecute
I meant "So ideas can’t be stolen??". I need to get a nap, lol.
Really? So ideas can be stolen?? Tell this to Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and
also to the Android from Google, — lol. Any idea can be stolen, it’s up to
the stoler to make it happen, maybe he is smarter, more creative and more
determined than the original creator. There are many ideas around, so,
steal(improve) them if u can. I rather not telling mine until u start
seeing them addicting the mass.
Nice one ! Thanks
you guys keep screwing up yotube pleas stop -_-
