Ottawa, ON: James Bowen co-founded a technology company when he was 21 years of age. He had little guidance or mentorship to draw upon. In those days technology companies were a relatively new phenomenon and advice for start-ups wasn't readily available.
Years later, now the owner of a successful software services firm and an adjunct Professor at the Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa, Dr. Bowen has drawn on those early experiences and authored a book to help entrepreneurs.
Dr. Bowen’s book, The Entrepreneurial Effect, is a collection of articles by prominent Ottawa area technology entrepreneurs. With a Forward contributed by Terry Matthews, the list of contributors reads like a who’s who of the industry. Topics include “Getting the Financing Right", "Leading in Different Environments" and "Launching products into the US market"
This book is an attempt to capture the thoughts on different aspects of entrepreneurship of some of Ottawa’s brightest entrepreneurs and make them available to individuals contemplating a technology start up. There was nothing like this available when I started out. I am hoping to fill that void, at least partially”, Dr. Bowen said.
The Entrepreneurial Effect can be ordered on line from http://www.commonerspublishing.com/ Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to support student technology entrepreneurship.
