12 Criteria for the Ideal Business
Mr. Steven C. Book, Hon. Chairman of TEN & Serial Entrepreneur

The ideal or "perfect" business can probably never be found. Besides, what may be ideal to one entrepreneur may not be desirable to another. However, seasoned business people and serial entrepreneurs often develop criteria for businesses they are looking for or are willing to invest in.  Some of these criteria are quite obvious but their importance is often down-played or overlooked - especially by less experienced entrepreneurs - in the initial excitement over a new product, service or type of business.  Steven will attempt to cut through the "noise" and discuss 12 key criteria for starting a business or buying an existing one.

After Stevens presentation, the session will continue in an interactive Q & A format where members and guests are encouraged to discuss relevant issues.

Agenda (approx.):
6:30 to 7:10 cocktails and networking
7:10 General TEN announcements
7:15 Presentation by our speaker
