An excellent article from Businessweek surveying some of the great tech companies that were founded during a downturn.
My favorite quote:
“Talk to the entrepreneurs who built great companies during bad times, and they’ll tell you there are a number of lessons that help explain their success. Atop the list: Founders of the most successful companies are motivated less by the lure of riches than the dream to solve an important problem and benefit the world.”
