I wrote this book for you. If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, “intrapreneur”, or just want to know more about how to apply technology to a business, this book is for you. There are a lot of excellent books out there on there on high tech and entrepreneurship, many of them referenced on this site. I think this book will give you at least two things that are hard to find elsewhere.

First, Starting a Tech Business is comprehensive and specific. I wrote it after helping friends and colleagues get their own tech businesses off the ground. I could never find anything that hit all the key points in a simple package. This is that book. Second, this book simplifies complex but important topics that are hard to find in a similar form elsewhere- for example applying design thinking, iterative development, and process design to a tech business.

And what about this website? What does it have besides a (hopefully) funny video and a link to buy the book (please be my guest)?

  • You’ll find descriptions of all the book’s chapters.
  • Also a number of supplemental resources. For example, there are sample product designs, financial models, and prototypes for the example company I use in the book, Enable Quiz.
  • Finally you can post your thoughts and experiences. I look forward to your thoughts on the book, topics of interest, stories, and suggestions for anything else you’d like to see on the site.
