Here’s why you should be involved with INfuze Indiana.
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” ~ Nolan Bushnell
Entrepreneur and innovator Nolan Bushnell founded a company in 1969 to create a home version of an early computer game. His product, Pong, and his company, Atari, went on to create the home video gaming industry through the groundbreaking Atari 2600 video game console.
After selling the company to Warner Communications in 1978, Bushnell launched the Chuck E. Cheese chain of pizza and entertainment restaurants, and formed Catalyst Technologies, a venture capital company.
Among other successes, Catalyst funded a major portion of a company called Etak in 1984, which developed the first digitized maps of the world, ultimately providing the core data for MapQuest.com and Google Maps.
It’s unlikely that Bushnell would have achieved these successes alone – there were numerous partners, business associates, and employees that contributed to these successes. It’s equally unlikely that Nolan would have succeeded if he sat around dreaming and wishing and waiting for something to happen; you have a 100% chance of failure if you do nothing at all.
At INfuze Indiana, we’re clear on the three things that make all entrepreneurial companies work: drive, capital, and community – and we want you to be a part of it by attending our awareness events or by sponsoring our activities.
