Leading experts get entrepreneurs and investors up to speed on high-growth business opportunities The rules of building a new business changed dramatically with the bursting of the dot com bubble. Yet despite the ups and downs of the stock market, the time has never been riper for entrepreneurs and investors. Most industry observers now agree that the next few years will see a dramatic growth of opportunities in wireless and broadband communications, consumer and enterprise marketing, health services, and banking, just to name a few e-business sectors. But, to succeed in this new environment, you have to play by new rules, and sources of expert advice and guidance are few and far between. Coauthored by one of today's most successful and visible entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, Lightspeed Business fills that information vacuum with no-nonsense advice and practical wisdom.
With hard-hitting analysis, invaluable insights, and war stories gleaned from an unparalleled tenure in the trenches, the authors deliver proven money-making ideas, present new rules on how to start, finance, and invest in a successful startup, and explain why conventional business strategies are doomed to failure in this new business environment. Lightspeed Business provides everything investors need to know to recognize a big opportunity and quickly build a successful business. J.
