Idea Makers and Idea Brokers in High technology Entrepreneurship Book Description :

Startup adventures often need the services of such professionals as consultants, attorneys, and recruiters, but cannot afford to pay them, so turn to venture capitalists, who take equity in the enterprise in return for cash. Carayannis (management science, George Washington U.) and Juneau, a Washington, DC lawyer, suggest that entrepreneurs might be able to acquire the services of such professionals by offering them the equity directly. In addition to reducing the cost, they say, cutting out middlemen can bring the professionals into more intimate engagement with the operation.

A fundamental change in the way organisations approach innovation is taking place. It is driven by the simple realisation that not all the smart people work for just one organisation.

Makers at Work Book Description :

What do you get when you combine an electronics hobbyist, hacker, garage mechanic, kitchen table inventor, tinkerer, and entrepreneur? A “maker,” of course. Playful and creative, makers are—through expertise and experimentation—creating art, products, and processes that change the way we think and interact with the world. As you’ll see from the 21 interviews in Makers at Work, inquisitive makers are just as apt to pick up a laser cutter or an Arduino as a wrench to fashion something new. For example, you’ll meet Jeri Ellsworth, who might provide a video lecture on magnetic logic one day and a tutorial on welding a roll bar on a stock car the next. You’ll also meet Eben Upton, who put cheap, powerful computing in the hands of everyone wi...
