Entrepreneurs with limited access to capital (a traditional hurdle for women, but one that increasingly applies to men as well) will find these accounts particularly useful. Only five of the subjects Silver profiles launched their businesses with professional venture capital; the rest got off the ground through sweat equity, supplier financing, and/or loans from family and friends. Their clear-eyed view of financing obstacles will help would-be entrepreneurs track down new sources of capital and steer clear of classic pitfalls. So too will the author's six-step process, which demonstrates how you can create value by identifying a problem, devise an innovative solution, and build the right team and system to deliver the solution

"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. The Quantum 100 are electric - forecast to be the most exciting companies of the year 2000"--Jacket

Strategic partnering by A. David Silver( Book )

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

The social network business plan : 18 strategies that will create great wealth by A. David Silver( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All of us know that users of the Web do not read advertisements on the websites we visit, yet the online communities are emerging as the next great media rely solely on this method to produce revenue. In The Social Network Business Plan, social network expert, David Silver presents and explains 18 cutting-edge methods to create revenue for social network websites--none of which are advertising. He also predicts the demise of seemingly successful online communities such as MySpace and Facebook that rely on advertising as non-sustainable modalities. Silver describes and explains that in the future new products and services will be introduced, talked about, rated, reviewed and recommended - or killed - by online communities. One example of the 18 new revenue channels that online communities are adopting is the sale to vendors of anonymized conversations of the community members concerning those vendors' products or services. Another example is online communities who partner with the internet providers to receive payment when a particular online community's information is downloaded usinf that providers service. The other sixteen revenue channels are equally head-turning! Silver is the only angel investor, operating down where the rubber meets the road, who is investing in online communities in their infancy, and writing about which ones will win and which ones will fail
