With big companies shedding jobs in this recession, some former employees and unattached executives are exploring entrepreneurship. Those venturing there for the first time will find entrepreneurs play by a different set of rules, says adjunct lecturer of entrepreneurial studies at Ross. Price, a serial technology entrepreneur who is chairman and co-founder of Cielo MedSolutions LLC, wrote "The Venture Value Chain: A Conceptual Framework for Building Successful New Businesses."
