Words of the Week – weed out
Weed Out (image: who.log.why)
To weed out means to remove undesirables. The term is often used in the educational world (e.g. Organic Chemistry is a weed out class for Pre-Med majors) as well as in the business world.
I was at Wharton last week discussing an Entrepreneurship project with a couple of students from Japan, and the word of the week came up like this, “You’ve got a great business concept here, and I really like your thinking about finding motivated customers. If you can figure out how to weed out the rest, this could be a really successful idea!”
