Version 2.0: Best-Selling Technology Ventures Book Updated

Technology entrepreneurship involves identifying high-potential, technology-intensive opportunities; gathering talent, capital and other resources; and managing rapid growth and significant risks. The best-selling Technology Ventures: From Idea to Enterprise, co-authored by Professor Richard C. Dorf and Stanford University’s Thomas H. Byers, was the first book to examine this global phenomenon. The recently released second edition (McGraw-Hill, 2006) integrates the most valuable entrepreneurship and technology management theories from the world’s leading scholars and educators. Upgraded examples and exercises, together with a new “venture challenge” business plan exercise at the end of each chapter, and two new full-length cases in the appendix, provide an action-oriented approach that emphasizes technology ventures worldwide. The book is organized in a modular format to allow for both systematic learning and random access of the material; this comprehensive collection of concepts and applications provides both students and professionals with an understanding of the critical differences between scientific ideas and true business opportunities—and provides the tools to successfully grow a technology enterprise. The new edition includes a new multimedia DVD that features video clips of entrepreneurial thought leaders from Silicon Valley. Additional cases studies, videos, articles and PowerPoint slides focused on the creation and management of technology ventures are available online.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
