Product description

Written with the cooperation of Harvard Business School, this is an instructive and inspiring book for anyone who dreams of starting a successful business. The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells how three HBS graduates turned down six-figure salaries at big corporations, bet on themselves and launched their own new companies. By their ten-year reunion their audacity had paid huge dividends. They'd made many millions of dollars, created hundreds of jobs and left their mark on the world. Based on dozens of interviews with highly successful entrepreneurs, Harvard Business School professors and HBS alumni, The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells the compelling and instructive story of how these three young founders developed ideas, assembled teams, built ventures, and achieved their dreams. Along the way, they learned that starting great companies requires much more than a ferocious work ethic or good timing. Their hard-won insights - distilled into ten key rules - will help anyone become a successful entrepreneur.
