With so much attention given to the 1% of entrepreneurs who do receive funding, Sramana Mitra turns the tables and presents her analysis of why over 99% of the entrepreneurs who seek financing get rejected in her new book, The Other 99% (Entrepreneurs): Fortune In The Middle Of The Pyramid (Amazon Kindle; September 19, 2013). This collection of instructive and thought-provoking essays by Sramana Mitra, a serial entrepreneur, writer, and founder of the One Million by One Million (1M/1M) global virtual incubator, discusses top of mind questions for everyone concerned with startups, entrepreneurs, capital flows, and such.
What can be done to help millions of entrepreneurs be successful? What causes ‘Infant Entrepreneur Mortality’, and how to reduce it? What roles do incubators play? What roles do corporations play? How to plug the capital gaps in the eco-system? Why is Venture Capital not enough? And what could unlock the fortune in the middle of the pyramid?
Like her well-received Entrepreneur Journeys book series, this volume also includes several of Sramana’s intimate interviews with successful entrepreneurs – from whose stories she derives many of her incisive insights – to round out her analysis of why the middle of the economic pyramid is an essential piece of Capitalism 2.0.
“I’m on a quest, searching for a viable, pragmatic framework for Capitalism 2.0,” explains Sramana. “This collection of essays introduces my current thinking and the basis for the One Million by One Million initiative.
