Harvard Business School Press, 1991 - Business & Economics - 307 pages
In 1971, Sandra Kurtzig was a 24-year-old working wife, thinking of starting a family and looking for a job she could do at home. With 2 years' experience selling computer time-sharing and some knowledge of programming, she started her own business helping small- to mid-size companies streamline their manufacturing and accounting operations. Starting with $2,000 and working in a spare bedroom, Kurtzig built ASK Computer Systems into the fastest-growing software company in the United States, with clients including Eastmen Kodak, Hughes Aircraft, and Emerson Electric. In 1981, Kurtzig became the first woman to take a high-tech company public, bringing off a successful public offering in the midst of a Wall Street slump. In this book she shares the business knowledge, resourcefulness, and will to win that made her impressive success possible.
