Think you don’t need an MBA to start a business? Think again. | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

If you’re serious about being an entrepreneur, an MBA will give you an extra edge.

MBA programs vary from school to school, but you can be sure that by the time you’re out you’ll be conversant in a range of topics. Need to read a financial statement? Set up a pricing plan? Motivate your employees? Understand a VCs game-plan when he offers you a term sheet? Understand why you’re bleeding your seed money like a hunted seal? An MBA will teach you the fundamental theory that lets you answer each of these questions.

Entreprenuers With Choices - Forbes | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

"So you’re in your twenties and you want to be an entrepreneur. A Mark Zuckerberg. A Steve Jobs. A Bill Gates. After all, you devoted four years studying for it, another five years (or longer!) paying back student loans. And if you do start a business, you’re probably taking out another loan to kick-start it – and then spending another bunch of years trying to pay it back. Considering the options, a 9-5 job doesn’t sound so bad.

So who in their right mind would walk out of a stable career and risk everything? Well, me ..."

World's Youngest VC-Funded Entrepreneur?

World's Youngest VC-Funded Entrepreneur? | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it
He was just 15 when he landed his first chunk of change from VCs. Now this high-schooler counts Ashton Kutcher, Yoko Ono, and Mark Pincus as backers.

“News on mobile is fundamentally broken,” D’Alosio explains. “It’s not the personalization element that needs to change--it’s the content. A lot of start-ups are trying to solve personalization, but this is a step beyond that. People are just fundamentally not interacting with the content itself, that’s the issue. We’ve tried to algorithmically come up with a solution."

D'Alosio has used the $1 million to hire "some serious scientists" to improve on his original algorithm.

Entrepreneurship Is The New Women's Movement - Forbes

Entrepreneurship Is The New Women's Movement - Forbes | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it
Women are leaving the workforce in droves in favor of being at home. Not to be a homemaker, but as job-making entrepreneurs.

Women have been starting businesses at a higher rate than men for the last 20 years and tend to create home-based micro (less than 5 employees) and small businesses. Women will create over half of the 9.72 million new small business jobs expected to be created by 2018 and more and more are doing this from home offices across the country. It’s a surprising statistic, especially considering that women-owned businesses only created 16 percent of total U.S. jobs that existed in 2010.

Startup Success: Is Hard Work Enough?

Startup Success: Is Hard Work Enough? | Transformations in Business & Law | Scoop.it

A good friend of mine has long argued that startups can succeed through vision and hard work. Because I only partially agree with his position, we have had more than one heated argument on the subject. It is my belief that hard work and a great idea are required ingredients for success, but that those two elements alone are not enough for a startup to become a success.

 

Imagine a great Amazonian rainforest. As your mind floats along the banks of a surging river in this rainforest, pause for a moment and take in the strength and beauty of the mightiest of the trees that you can see in front of you. Reaching above all of the other plants and collecting a shower of precious sunlight, this tree is over 100 feet tall, with sinewy roots reaching deep into the rich forest soil. Beautiful isn’t it?

 

Did this tree get to be the the giant that it is because of hard work? Not hardly.
