Why startups win
This quote from The Godfather II is a great example of why it is startups who disrupt industries. There are few things stronger than passion and the will to succeed.
MICHAEL I saw an interesting thing happen today. A rebel was being arrested by the military police, and rather than be taken alive, he exploded a grenade he had hidden in his jacket. He killed himself, and took a captain of the command with him.
[ROTH looks concerned]
JOHNNY OLA Those rebels, you know, they're lunatics.
MICHAEL Maybe so -- but it occurred to me. The soldiers are paid to fight -- the rebels aren't.
ROTH What does that tell you?
MICHAEL They can win.
