Make It Happen | A Kauffman Foundation Video.

In a new Kauffman Foundation sketchbook video titled “Make It Happen,” Tim O’Reilly, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, recalls the launch of Make Magazine and Maker Faire, and says that hobbyists playing with new technologies have often led the way into hotbeds of a new industry.

“I think that self-motivated spirit is what drives entrepreneurs, and we need to have it drive everyone,” O’Reilly says. “Because if you do something useful, if you do something for love, some good percentage of those things will actually turn into a business. That’s really the heart of entrepreneurship — wanting to make something happen.”

The video pays tribute to the crazy ideas, fun projects and new technologies that people spend time working on with no idea that their pastime could turn into a business. “They’re doing it because they love it and because they’re excited about it,” says O’Reilly.
