We've been having a lot of discussions surrounding design and entrepreneurship at FounderDating recently. We just hosted a design panel this week about why more designers aren't opting in to entrepreneurship with Jeffrey Kalmikoff (Betable, Threadless), Alexa Andrzejewsji (Foodspotting), Josh Brewer (Twitter, 52weeksofUX, and Jason Putorti (Mint, Causes) where the broad answers ranged from not having enough resources, misconceived notions about what it takes to become an entrepreneur and even a fear of failure. Jessica (our CEO) just wrote an article for WIRED mag that was published today - http://bit.ly/1daDTNN
. I'd really love to hear what the community, especially designers, has to say about why more designers aren't founding their own companies.
