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. Entrepreneurs would be well served to keep this manual close at hand and mull over it, not just read it once and put it aside. Rose discusses how difficult it is to find the right mentor, but getAbstract finds that his guidebook provides much of the insight a mentor might provide to anyone involved with planning, running or investing in a start-up.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to move from a great idea to a viable start-up,
- How to establish your business and help it grow,
- How to finance your start-up, and
- How to sell it.
