Overview

The new virtual marketplace has arrived. Opportunities abound, and billions of dollars are in play, from YouTube and MySpace to Facebook and Google. This is the age of e-Preneurs-individuals who combine entrepreneurial skills with Web 2.0 sawy.

So what's the next big thing? The crowd-based creative fire that Wikipedia sparked has caught on beyond anyone's projections, and its effect is increasing daily. The term "wiki"-a collaborative Website that can be edited by users-is increasingly part of modern vocabulary; the online crowd is becoming unstoppable.

Today, this power of the crowd is used for everything from swapping photos, designing shoes, discovering pharmaceuticals, and developing software. In coming years, however, this global mass of humanity huddled around computers will shape policies, assist companies, and affect countries as never before. That's where crowdpreneurs come in. The people who use crowd power to innovate the virtual marketplace are the entrepreneurial leaders of the online age.

e-PRENEUR is the first book to survey, analyze, and make sense of the entire field of Web 2.0 crowd-power companies. It shows how to succeed as a crowdpreneur by explaining the principles of innovation and revenue models, and the process of going from idea to opportunity. Discover the power of mass collboration and online networking!
