Inspiring

I love to share inspiring stories about young entrepreneurs. Marc Lore was an indifferent student but had this head for numbers. Still in his twenties he collapsed one day from the stress of his investment banking job and started selling diapers online through his site Quidsi. Amazon undercut him and forced him to sell Quidsi to it for a cool $500 million (so Amazon saw potential in the business). Now he has started Jet.com based on a more creative revenue model than Amazon and is taking on the big guys in eCommerce. Read about it here, there are some lessons about the future of our business at MCIS, here!
