    Betrayal and Competition Today's entrepreneurs consider technology as the holy grail of development and success. Any venture that an individual goes into today must include a revolutionary technological aspect if they are to succeed. Seeing as how this knowledge is common amongst entrepreneurs, an aspect of competition arises in the market.
