Upstarts! is an easy and excellent read about GenY entrepreneurs and how they use their instincts and technology to shake-up the business world. As a GenY-er, I found myself shaking my head in agreement many times as Donna Fenn explains the reasons (many of these entrepreneurs) chose to start their own businesses.
This book is not only insightful, but also extremely motivating. Reading how these entrepreneurs used their skills or decided to take on the status quo got my own wheels turning and focusing my own thoughts into sustainable ideas that could possibly be solid business ideas.
Do yourself a favor and pick up this book. Entrepreneur or not, it provides insights into how the Millennial generation will forever change the face of business.
I enjoyed reading her book from cover to cover. From Chapter 1, which shows how new innovative businesses are moving away from a personal accomplishments mentality to a new collaborative paradigm, to Chapter 9 which brings some perspective on the future of Upstarts.
In closing, I firmly believe that any Upstarters who adopt the lessons from this book is bound to challenge the conventional wisdom and create a new kind of venture with a great sense of purpose.
