Entrepreneurs open thousands of start-up businesses, but only a few succeed. Serial entrepreneur and angel investor David S. Rose offers a thoughtful, comprehensive checklist to help you establish a start-up that will flourish. Using the format of 25 “key action steps,” he provides sage advice and insight to help you understand and tackle the challenges you will encounter along the way.
