Overview

Hosting a business venture entirely through information technology (IT) has increasingly been the initiative of many entrepreneurs.

Cases on Information Technology and Entrepreneurship is a cutting-edge look into how IT can be the structural foundation of an entrepreneurship, and describes specific examples of IT as the base of a start-up company -- providing insight into the successes and failures of applying IT in innovative ways.
