Solopreneurs are on the rise

Guest column in Crunchbase News examines the trend.

In a recent guest column for Crunchbase News, Sailesh Ramakrishnan writes about the rise of the solopreneur, the entrepreneur who elects to found a company on his or her own. He is Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Rocketship, a global, early stage venture capital firm based in Los Altos, CA.

Ramakrishnan says that artificial intelligence (AI) is driving the rise of solopreneurs.

“Accessible AI tools are at the forefront, letting solopreneurs automate tasks and easily tackle complex processes that include everything from data analysis to customer interactions,” he writes. “The most adept solopreneurs even craft custom GPTs and intelligent tools tailored to their unique business needs, sidestepping the security risks of public AI software.”

Ramakrishnan adds, “With technology helping solopreneurs go head-to-head with larger entities, it’s pushing later stage start-ups to adopt efficient tech and leaner models inspired by the minimal overhead and agile practices of solopreneurs.”
