Ever wonder how a startup comes together—the people, places, skills, failures, and hustle that make it a real business? This is the story of David and David, two entrepreneurs with lots of energy and less of a roadmap than you might think. In 1993, David Cohen and David Brown founded their first company, Pinpoint Technologies, which grew from a basement startup to a successful multinational company with $50 million in annual sales and over 250 employees.
Chronicling the story of that company from its beginnings up to 1999, when it was sold to ZOLL, and beyond, No Vision All Drive is the story of that company and the people who transformed a flat-broke, shot-in-the-dark concept into a market-leading small business.
- This book is not about business; it’s about people
- David and David recount their experiences together
- Insight on how to build a successful startup
- Turn a seed idea into reality
Startup founders and startup employees, venture capitalists, serial entrepreneurs, and anyone with an interest in stories of determination and hard work will love No Vision All Drive.
