    "This book provides a strong foundation for impending entrepreneurs to aid in determining the possible positive outcomes of the venture."--Marcy Freed, President, VitalStim, Inc."This book deals very bravely with the opportunity of technology entrepreneurship. This is a great, courageous effort."--Jerome S. Engel, Executive Director, Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of California, Berkeley"Finding Fertile Ground provides a terrifically engaging perspective on the mindset of the successful entrepreneur. Scott Shane s well-structured analysis and thought-provoking conclusions give would-be entrepreneurs a great set of tools to use in assessing opportunities and risks. I highly recommend this as a must-read for anyone considering starting a new venture."--David Courtney, Executive Vice President and Board Member of TiVo, Inc."Truly great technology startup opportunities are very rare and therefore very hard to identify.

It is a must read for entrepreneurs determined to build only great high tech businesses."--Ian C. MacMillan, Academic Director: Snider Entrepreneurial Research Center, Sullivan Professor of ManagementThe Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania"If you don t have the money to pay for this book now, give the bookstore an IOU. Your chances of being able to pay it back with high interest will rise with every chapter. The author and I share two core beliefs: the critical importance of selling, and the need for potential entrepreneurs to be tech savvy, even if they are not techie."--Kenneth P.
