"People in mission-inspired industries pursue a goal that is

bigger than they are--and, if you pull them aside at the end of a long

day, will probably confess that they don't know if what they are

building will succeed. They are "innovators," in the way that business school professor Clayton Christensen described:

taking ideas from other fields or industries and applying it, with a

twist in a new environment. They trust their instincts and look for

evidence, and at the end of the day, believe deeply in the promise of

their mission."

Good definition. They are missionaries, not mercenaries.
