"According to A. David Silver, the business world is entering a period of change in which transactions count more than content. And so, the most dynamic companies are those that enable manufacturers to move their product from the drawing board to the customer faster, cheaper, and better; those that can transmit video conferences and pictures of missing children to wireless palmtops; and those that can deliver products and services to the emerging democracies." "The stories of the 100 Quantum Companies will help you understand how the business world is shaping up for the next century, what the growth industries are going to be, and who the companies are that epitomize them. These companies will be providing investment opportunities, career opportunities, and order of magnitude changes in every aspect of our lives.

Strategic partnering by A. David Silver( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recently, resource-strapped entrepreneurs and small business owners scrambling for start-up funding and assistance have been forced to turn to family and friends, venture capitalists, wealthy individuals, or government-guaranteed loans. But today there's an extraordinary new source of launch capital - strategic alliances with large corporations. Now, best-selling author and leading venture capitalist A. David Silver reveals everything you need to know to tap into this virtually bottomless pool of creative business funding. In Strategic Partnering you'll discover how hundreds of domestic and foreign corporations - computer giants, utilities, publishers, steel and pharmaceutical companies, communications and entertainment firms - are investing in entrepreneurial companies, in return for the rights to make or market new products and services, and only a small fraction of ownership. You'll learn how and when to contact these potential strategic partners, surefire ways for writing an inviting business plan, and the six key steps for closing a strategic alliance. Imagine leveraging start-up capital and business expertise from the likes of IBM, Ameritech, Alcoa, Eli Lilly, or Nippon Steel, without giving up a major equity stake in your company. Armed with Strategic Partnering, you'll discover how to do all this and more, including how to speed your products or services to the market faster, at less cost ... how to exploit corporate R&D and manufacturing assistance ... how to boost sales through a corporate partner's time-tested marketing channels and distribution resources ... how to access low-cost computer time and health insurance ... and much more. To help you swiftly position your company for success, Strategic Partnering supplies the first-ever, comprehensive directory of the most active strategic partners in the U.S. and abroad. In addition to sharing current contact information and profiling each firm's strategic alliances, the directory reveals the corporate gatekeepers who can make or break your deal, and shows how to contact outside corporate directors and accounting firms to create an inside endorsement to carry your deal to the decision makers. In the turbulent '90s, the key to entrepreneurial success lies in forming strategic partnerships with large corporations and becoming a major player without the traditional injection of equity capital and the big financial bite it brings. Featuring a sample confidential disclosure agreement and a sample licensing agreement, this must-read book shows results-hungry entrepreneurs and small business owners how to tap into today's richest sources of capital, R&D assistance, marketing support, and other critical business resources

Smart start-ups : how entrepreneurs and corporations can profit by starting online communities by A. David Silver( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Inside Flap: Online communities like MySpace and YouTube are shaking up the business world and helping millions of people come together to share information and interests. These social networking sites rely on user-generated content to bring together millions of people from around the globe. User-generated data eliminates the cost of goods sold, resulting in huge cash flow potential on very little up-front investment. But, until now, very few people or corporations have been able to tap into that moneymaking potential. In Smart Start-Ups, entrepreneur and angel investor David Silver reveals how social networking will change the face of business and create thousands of new millionaires over the next decade. More important, he shows entrepreneurs and corporations how to tap into this powerful trend using visionary business plans to build social networks that will make millions. Most social networking sites allow members to join for free, relying on Web advertising for revenue. But in the future, networking sites will connect members of niche groups with each other. From Trekkies to knitting aficionados, those with particular interests will pay for the ability to come together and collaborate. Future networking sites won't be built on advertising revenue, but will rely instead on subscriber-based fees, tip jars, kudos, and wireless carrier fees for their revenue sources. Using case studies of companies you might not have heard of yet-but will-Silver explains business plans and models for start-up online communities, showing how to produce value for members, attract more paying customers, and make it all work at a profit. You'll learn what's happening in social networking, who the major players are, and what makes them successful. Plus, you'll have all the tools you need to research, facilitate ideas, and develop a business model for your own profitable and unique social networking start-up. Plus, launching an online or mobile community is relatively inexpensive-as little as $300,000! Online and mobile communities could represent the biggest area of economic growth and wealth creation in modern economic history-but only if smart entrepreneurs get in on the act and get serious about making them work. If you want to learn how to tap into the social and economic potential in this revolutionary new kind of business, Smart Start-Ups will show you the way
