You will meet the nimble minds behind such phenomenally successful Net enterprises as priceline.com, E*trade, and VerticalNet as they describe in their own words how they took the classic formula for starting a business and kicked it into overdrive on the Internet. They tell you how they identified specific consumer needs and developed innovative ways to meet them over the Net, guiding users through the avalanche of data to exactly what they want. In short, theyll show you what it takes to be an entrepreneur who makes changes in a changing world.
Jay Walker reveals how he rose from teenage "black marketer," underselling the candy store at his summer camp, to multibillionaire founder of priceline.com, the online phenomenon with the slogan "Name Your Own Price." Christy Jones of pcOrder explains why she gave up millions of dollars in Trilogy stock to pursue an unproven idea. And Russ Horowitz shows how his "If you cant build it, buy it" philosophy enabled Go2Net to explode onto the Internet as a "prefab" powerhouse.
The stories of these and other winners of Ernst & Youngs Entrepreneur of the Year® Award are informative, entertaining, and much more. They will inspire you to pursue your own dreams and dedicate yourself to a goal that may at first seem impossible. And the insights, strategies, and tactics these ultra-entrepreneurs reveal will help guide your own efforts and give you the know-how and confidence you need to succeed as a Net entrepreneur.

I strongly recommend this net entreprenures only because we could find the ways for final winners in business world. Sudden Billionaires is not important and their motivation, know-how, business revolution is important. How are they different from the competition and from the rest of us? We could find Future forecasting and next opportunities. Those who become economic winners understand the new technologies, are lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time and have the skills to take advantage of these new situations.Was this review helpful?
