Thank you Danielle! This is a book about the entrepreneurial processes that have successfully created, developed, and sustained breakthrough ventures. It is a masters guide for entrepreneurs that really want to have a lasting impact on the world - for entrepreneurs not only interested in software related ventures, but also ones based on technology and business models that impact markets ranging from medical devices to small satellites to home robotics systems to clean water and more. It brings the entrepreneurs through the entire venture life cycle - starting from creating the venture concept, and ending with how to decide to go public or be acquired.

I can't wait for this book to come out next month, written by two tech greats from the school of SRI. Book blurb: "If You Really Want to Change the World is about helping entrepreneurs find true north. Henry Kressel and Norman Winarsky--technologists, inventors, and investors with stellar track records--provide a guide for those who wish to create a market-leading company that will have a real impact: a disciplined and staged approach they have used to launch, invest in, and develop scores of highly successful companies."
