New Entrepreneurial Economy

In 2003 in United States, a staggering 61% of the listed companies were started at home, at the CEO's kitchen table, and 16% were initially capitalized with less than US$1,000. This is an inspiring evidence illustrating how much an entrepreneur can accomplish with an idea whose time has come.

Success stories such as Ehsan Bayat with his company bringing cell phones to Afghan is one of those success stories.

Of course, good ideas are not enough to turn a US$1,000 investment into a multi-million dollar enterprise. It takes execution skills venture management, entrepreneurial creativity, entrepreneurial leadership, financial management, effective marketing and luck, of course! to grow a home business to the point where it's ready to take public. Business should be driven by fun, but it is not a game for amateurs! "Ideas are a dime a dozen; only execution skills count," say your venture capital investors.
