Big things in business always start small – a spark, an idea, a moment of inspiration. Yet in today’s digital economy, they can scale fast. That’s why at Fortune, we celebrate size as an aspiration. Our focus isn’t “Big Business”; it’s the people in business who want to succeed big.

 

In the March issue of Fortune , we profile 15 entrepreneurs who are on their way to doing just that. They range from 18-year-old Anya Pogharian, who wants to revolutionize the costly and cumbersome dialysis process; to Wall Street veteran Blythe Masters, who hopes to use block-chain technology to remake banking; to Scooter Braun, who has changed the power equation in the music business. You can see the full list here.

 

Also today, we are announcing the launch of a new web service for entrepreneurs – Venture – that will use all the rich tools of digital and social media to provide inspiration, insight and advice to a new generation of business disrupters. The Venture team will be headed by Lauren Covello, previously managing editor of Entrepreneur.com. You can start your venture at fortune.com/venture/.

 

In other news, Apple has gotten itself where no company wants to be — in the middle of the presidential primary debates. Donald Trump called the company “disgraceful.” Marco Rubio took a more nuanced approach.
