This question initial takes the positive part of Steve Jobs but for the benefit of justifying every action I will be weighing his good approach with the negative ones.

What are the factors that contributed to the success and failure of Steve Jobs as a technopreneur?

But first let us define what is technoprenuer or technoprenuership. A technoprenuer is an entrepreneur who is technology savvy, creative, innovative, dynamic, dares to be different and take the unexplored path, and very passionate about their work. They take challenges and strive to lead their life with greater success. *

My answer to the no. 1 question is the guts and wit of Steve Jobs that made him a successful technoprenuer, though in the end he was outwitted by Bill Gates his prime competitor that he thought that International Business Machine(IBM) would be the enemy, back to the question, his creative ideas and shrewdness lead him to the peak of his career as a technoprenuer, he vied even he faces failures in his work, he didn’t mind about his setbacks but pressed onward to his goal, also he was clever in his decision and moves. He dared even stealing somebody’s work though I strongly disgust in his action, the creator of the idea would credit but he didn’t do that. However, this would take as a positive thing as a technoprenuer, that we should dare on things that can help us achieve our goal and not by pirating other’s work.

The Steve Jobs bio, and the tale of the life of a man whose career would rebound more times than many critics, began in San Francisco, California on February 24, 1955. His mother is an American while his father is a Syrian, Jobs was put up for adoption by his parents the week after his arrival in this world. Taken in by Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, California, because of this Steve consider that his real and only parents are Paul and Clara. And to elaborate it furthermore I will be listing some of his successes in his life as a technoprenuer. On June 12, 2005, graduates of Stanford University were treated to Apple founder Steve Jobs’ Commencement address. Steve Jobs was a college dropout from college, Jobs shared to the students in their commencement program by starting it by saying, “Truth be told, this is the closest I’ve ever gotten to a college graduation.” And yet Steve Jobs was hailed in that day as a proud Stanford University, he gained respect from the people because Steve Jobs inspite of his history as a student became successful in the world of computers. And also Steve Jobs was invited to the Ivy League school to deliver a speech and share his advice, encouragement and experience with the soon to be leaders of their generation.
First, the well - known motto of Steve Jobs is “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else’s life,” this motto of Steve Jobs brought him to the top of his, this constituted in his career to become a billionaire in his young age of 17.
Steve Jobs is keen observer that after seeing the work of Wozniak in creating a computer, Steve Jobs seized the opportunity of that computer in how it could gain respect in the market. And there Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak began their million trips to success.

Again Steve Jobs said “You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future,” and “You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” the strong personality of Steve Jobs was part of his success formula.
Steve Jobs said “The only way to do great work is to love what you do,” and “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” Yes, his determination was great and loving what you do is one of the keys that Steve Jobs used.

Steve Jobs in his 17 years of age quoted “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right.” And “Whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something,” searching for answer for all his concerns, he never stop to search for greater possibilities as a technoprenuer.
Steve Jobs said “Innovation is the distinction between a leader and a follower,” Steve Jobs displayed his character as a strong leader, and a leader that always see innovation from their past work. Steve Jobs was relentless in having innovation and his company and as the CEO or the leader of Apple Steve Jobs knew what is the rule of the leader.

Steve Jobs said “The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have,” Steve Jobs also look up to his past experiences, as a human being Steve Jobs knew that perfection was too hard to have and bound to failures but Steve Jobs looked to the past failures and made it his driving force in perfecting his formula as a successful technoprenuer.

Steve Jobs once said “I want to put a dent in the universe,” his boldness and big self – confident. I can imagine from Apple 1 to Macintosh and now the Ipod, Steve Jobs is conquering the universe.

Steve Jobs in his young age at 21 years old started one of the leading companies in computer up this day. Because of the initiative of Steve Jobs, Apple Company grew to become a leader and an innovator in computer around the globe, and also they are producing great software for their clients as well as leading in the electronics industry. Eventually, the Apple Company headed by Steve Job is ranked as the number 159 on the Fortune 500 yearly ranking of America’s largest corporations for 2006, with over $13.9 billion in revenues and almost 20,000 employees. Today, Steve Jobs continues to serve as the company’s Chief Executive Officer and doing well in his management in the company.

Steve Jobs loved this quote “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” When the billionaire technopreneur and Apple founder was 17 years old, because of that quote Steve Jobs recalls it as the quote that continues to make a lasting impression on him to until this day. That quote became Steve Jobs’ solid concept at heart when he was diagnosed in 2004 for having a cancer.
