The report’s case studies spring from Ernst & Young’s surveys of companies competing in its Entrepreneur of the Year campaign. The statistics reveal how various sectors advance through corporate life-cycle stages, and the report ably analyzes these progressions as well as recounting inspiring tales of how individual “bold ones” get the job done. getAbstract suggests this report to general business readers, investors and entrepreneurs.
