Make no mistake, even with all their potential for meteoric success, high tech ventures are synonymous with high risk. Fewer than one out of every fifty thousand Internet business plans submitted make it to the final stage. Many fail because the entrepreneurs did not have access to the invaluable lesson that comes from studying the real-world venture experiences of successful companies. Now they do. The book that has been called a must read for all high tech entrepreneurs by C-Cube Microsystems President Bill O'Meara, has all the hard-to-find information that start-ups need to rise to the top. HIGH TECH START UP presents a classic, step-by-step strategy for making a solid plan and securing comprehensive financing. Author John Nesheim provides more than twenty-three case studies that reveal how readers can modify their strategies to fit their particular objectives.
