Crowd Fund Economics by David Drake
The ambition of this book is to provide the missing link that will help people who have a good idea to take it further and turn it into reality. Readers of the earlier (French) version, published in 2006, told me that it changed their life by boosting their career and expanding their horizons.
This book has two main objectives: to help corporations acquire competitive advantages, and innovators turn their ideas into reality. Designed for doers, it provides a structured model of the entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial process. Given that there are already many ideas in the air, this book is not about creativity methods, for many good books are available on this subject. Rather, it is about discipline and process. It encourages innovators to look at their project in a systematic way instead of just relying on gut feeling and intuition. In other words, creativity is not enough. Framework and discipline are essential companions.
With 12 currencies (including service, innovation, and reciprocity), Sampson takes pertinent ideas from the life and works of Dr. King and, by combining them with real-life experiences, produces a guide through which one can realize their full potential and personal power. Success does not discriminate, and the road map to it is contained in the pages of this revolutionary new work.
