ZERO GRAVITY by Steve Harmon (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
How do fledgling companies make it from idea to multimillion-dollar Internet IPOs? Steve Harmon, whom CBS MarketWatch calls one of Wall Street’s top Internet stock analysts, shows how an innovator can convert sparks of imagination into a money-making Internet business.
Harmon describes the Internet environment as "zero gravity," a place where information, communication, and wealth flow up, down, and sideways as in an astronaut’s weightless environment. The result is nanosecond commerce—easy, inexpensive, customized—with a market not bound by locale or time.
In this book, Harmon introduces you to leading entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who describe how they built companies in cyberspace. From finding funding to structuring your financing, he provides myriad valuable resources to help you along the way.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch.
