Inspired by initiatives taking place in Silicon Valley-the prime incubator of today's most advanced business strategies-TechVenture provides an in-depth look at how a host of technologies and the businesses they enable have created new approaches to evaluating and nurturing business growth and profitability, rendering traditional methods obsolete. Drawing upon extensive field research and interviews with leaders from the worlds of business, finance, and technology, the book acquaints you with pioneering business and finance trends and approaches, and describes how they are redefining the enterprise organization and the face of competition.
