Steve Jobs embodied many of the characteristics held dear by entrepreneurs – creativity, foresight and focus being just some of his lauded qualities.

But it is perhaps the Apple co-founder’s passion for his craft that will resonate most with business builders. As he said more than once, he wasn’t motivated by money – he wanted to change the world.

Given that there’s a good chance that you’re reading this on a Mac, iPad or iPhone, it’s safe to say that he achieved this goal before passing away yesterday.

Today, we have pulled together 20 of Jobs’ best quotes on everything from innovation to mortality. It should prove instructive reading for any entrepreneur, regardless of the size and sector of your business.

Elsewhere, we have news of another incubator on the start-up scene, as well as a worrying new report on the state of Australian entrepreneurship. Meanwhile, mentor Colin Benjamin gives his tips on how to perfect your elevator pitch.
