What does it take to succeed today both personally and professionally? In looking for answers, one obvious place to start would be to talk to self-made men and women who themselves are successful. Thats exactly what Michael W. Sonnenfeldt-an accomplished entrepreneur-has done here in this ground-breaking book. Drawing on the wisdom, insight and experience of members of TIGER 21 (The Investment Group for Enhanced Results in the 21st Century), and supplementing that with additional research and interviews, Sonnenfeldt offers real-world guidance and often counter-intuitive advice and conclusions. Among the things youll learn are: Why grit and focus trump intelligence just about every time. Why having-and listening to- a wise mentor will create shortcuts to getting more done. What you need to do to avoid getting in your own way. And why. Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations can be avoided by taking some simple, commonsense steps. Think BIGGER will inspire you, no matter where you are in your business career. It will also show you that the skills you use to grow wealth can be applied to making the world a better place. Your success can benefit others. Michael W. Sonnenfeldt is the founder and chairman of TIGER 21, the premier peer-to-peer learning network for high-net-worth first generation wealth creators in North America and London. He is an accomplished serial entrepreneur, philanthropist and most excited that all of his proceeds from this book will support the TIGER 21 Foundation for young entrepreneurs. Michael W.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1, Uppsala University, language: English, abstract: Within a world of emerging global markets and rapid technological development, there is a strong demand for entrepreneurship within established companies in order to stay competitive. According to different studies, there is a positive linkage between Corporate Entrepreneurship (CE) and companies performance, which leads to a strong demand from organizations to foster their entrepreneurial culture. The recruitment and selection function within Human Resource Management (HRM) is an essential driver to attract, develop, and retain entrepreneurial people within corporations. The literature proposes that companies should match their selection criteria to the identified dimensions of Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO). However, there is a lack of research if companies have specific HRM practices to select and retain entrepreneurial people. By investigating the recruitment requirements and development possibilities of Swedish-based companies, this study contributes empirical knowledge to the topic of how companies deal with HRM and CE. This information improves the understanding in the Corporate Entrepreneurship literature.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim (Wirtschaft), course: Betriebswirtschaftliches Seminar, language: English, abstract: To have a great idea for a Start-up is a very good predisposition for a successful business. Despite this amazing thought, unfortunately a lot of Start-ups fail at the beginning. According to the statistics 34% of entrepreneurs are 20-29 years old and 40% are between 30-39 years old once they start their first business. Most of the people in this age are already well-educated and they do not have many savings. It makes them look for alternatives, which could support the first critical years of their Start-up. At the beginning no one wants to invest in an unknown business, which leaves them with the idea of borrowing money elsewhere. As a matter of fact, no one wants to take a disadvantageous loan, so young entrepreneurs usually ask their family and friends for help, but by taking this kind of money, they are putting the good friendships and relationships at stake. So what are the options? Where can a fresh entrepreneur start looking for help and financial support? The answer should be clearer after reading this paper. The goal we are trying to reach, is to give a better overview of the options of financing, the advantages and disadvantages of different methods and show it on real life examples. One of the most important thing is to be well informed about the possibilities which are available, so it may come to the realization of the original idea and building of a successful Start-up. In order to give a better insight on this topic, we will also choose existing Start-ups and analyse what methods they have used, how they were implemented and what they had to give in return. We will pick not only from the successful ones, but also from the less fortunate businesses as its important to understand the know-how of winners just as important as to know the mistakes of others.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensgründung, Start-ups, Businesspläne, Note: 1,3, Hochschule Fresenius München (Hochschule Fresenius München), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Deutschland, Land der Ideen. Um Ideen, Innovationen und technische Erneuerungen voranzutreiben, ist es wichtig, an deutschen Hochschulen und Universitäten eine nachhaltige Gründerkultur zu etablieren. Zu den Förderungen für Existenzgründer zählen vergünstigte Kredite, die Gewährung einer Bürgschaft für ein Darlehen oder Zuschüsse zur Existenzgründung und Fördermittel für hochschulnahe Ausgründungen. Auch Beteiligungskapital wird von Beteiligungsgesellschaften der Förderbanken und staatlichen Fonds angeboten. Warum das Alles? Weil Deutschland Entrepreneure braucht, die Verantwortung übernehmen und durch Innovationskraft Arbeits- und Ausbildungsplätze in zukunftsweisenden Wirtschaftsbranchen generieren. Selbstständigkeit bedeutet Eigenverantwortung zu übernehmen, Risiken zu schultern und flexibel zu sein. Entrepreneurship heißt in diesem Zusammenhang, dass auch junge und gut ausgebildete Menschen den Weg der eigenen Unternehmungsgründung gehen. Entrepreneurship soll dabei als Prozess erfasst werden, in dem unternehmerische Gelegenheiten identifiziert, evaluiert und genutzt werden. Hierfür wird in dieser Arbeit der Ablauf der Gründung eines innovativen Unter-nehmens als Prozess dargestellt. Der Focus liegt dabei vorwiegend auf dem Gesichtspunkt der Gründungsfinanzierung im Sinne von Entrepreneurial Finance. Die Bewältigung dieses Aufgabenbereiches ist für den Gründungserfolg von enormer Bedeutung, denn nur bei ausreichender Verfügbarkeit benötigter Finanzierungsmittel kann eine Geschäftsidee realisiert werden und ein vielversprechendes startup wachsen. Mit Hilfe eines aus der Literatur bekannten theoretischen Modells wird der Gründungsprozess in einem Phasen-Diagramm dar-gestellt, und dabei die Alternativen der Finanzierungsmöglichkeiten in den ein-zelnen Phasen diskutiert. Wie Entrepreneurial Finance praxisnah funktioniert, wird schließlich anhand einer praktischen Anwendung in Form eines erfolgreichen Ideenpapiers für das Startups Kids-Kleider-Kiste veranschaulicht. Die Kids-Kleider-Kiste ist eine Geschäftsidee, dessen Markteintritt über staatliche Fördermittel und eine hochschulnahe Ausgründung realisiert wurde. Die vorliegende Arbeit stellt Entrepreneurship als einen in Phasen ablaufenden systematischen Prozess dar und soll künftigen Entrepreneuren, die mit dem Gedanken einer Unternehmensgründung spielen, einen ersten Einblick über die Thematik Entrepreneurial Finance in den einzelnen Phasen liefern.
