Synopsis:

Why Do Half of All New Ventures Fail After 5 Years?


Think about two types of entrepreneurs, what the author calls a "Survivor" and "Maybe Next Time" entrepreneur. Your challenge - survive the critical 5 year milestone and be a "Survivor" entrepreneur. More rewarding and more fun compared to a "Maybe Next Time" entrepreneur. Unfortunately today’s SYOB books ( start your own business books) fall short. Simply put, yesterday’s skills do not meet today’s entrepreneur’s needs. Today’s SYOB books cover skills the author calls Entrepreneurial Management 1.0 - not good enough to help you be a "Survivor" entrepreneur.
Develop strategy management plans. Develop defensible business models. Execute winning capital formulation strategies. Understand how shifting markets, technology, competition impact your business. Use value chain analysis to drive business models. Develop Key Performance Indicators. Understand how to gauge market attractiveness with Five Force models. Identify “crossing the chasm” strategies to create scale. Analyze financials using accounting metrics. Manage and communicate professionally with investors and stakeholders.
These are not today’s typical start your own business skills but must be. And these new skills are the foundation for what the author calls Entrepreneurial Management 2.0 , a new entrepreneurial management discipline developed by the author, drawing upon Fortune 500 firm management techniques, and the author’s experiences working with many early stage companies.
"To be a great athlete or entrepreneur, you must master the fundamentals of the game. If you want to score big as an entrepreneur, Paul Silverman has provided the path--all the basics plus compelling real life stories. A must read for the next Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, or Jeff Bezos.” - Tom McMillen, Former Congressman, Olympian, NBA star, and businessman
Entrepreneurial Management 2.0 provides two powerful benefits for Entrepreneurs:
  • Improve your ability to “professionally manage” your business Send a strong positive message to investors, stakeholders, partners, colleagues, and others by sharpening your management skills, helping you be a "Survivor" entrepreneur.
  • Improve your ability to attract investors and secure financing Demonstrate to investors that you understand your market, competition, pricing, strategic positioning, and are executing well thought out strategies- these are the drivers to secure funding. And these messages are woven throughout Entrepreneurial Management 2.0

The Worm on a Chopstick series draws upon the author’s global experience to help entrepreneurs understand how to develop, launch, manage, and successfully grow new ventures. The author’s first book, “Worm on a Chopstick: Understanding Today’s Entrepreneurial Age: Directions, Strategies, Management Perspectives,” addressed entrepreneurial management issues and where we are heading, and received positive reviews (http://paulbsilverman.com/books/reviews/ ). The second book in the series, “8 Building Blocks to Launch, Manage, and Grow a Successful Business”, addresses what the author defines as Entrepreneurial Management 2.0, a portfolio of management tools and perspectives structured within eight Building Blocks.

The author’s commitment is to offer both entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs strategies and insights to help them launch, manage, and grow their business ventures.
