World of Warcraft: Entrepreneur incubator

If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.

There are plenty of places for entrepreneurs to hone their skills, but none is quite as unique as “World of Warcraft,” says John Seely Brown, former director of Xerox PARC. In this entrepreneur thought leader lecture given at Stanford University last week, Brown praises the massively multiplayer online game, saying it’s a great way to learn crowdsourcing, how to work with groups and fosters an environment where performance is both measured and critiqued.
