Technical Entrepreneurial Resources

Here is a list of resources for people looking for resources for entrepreneurial endeavors in the technical realm. Statistics have shown that something like 80% of all new business efforts fail, so doing some up-front research could save you some grief. Maybe your idea is not likely to produce the interest you envision; better to decide that before investing lots of time and money. Of course, you might be the exception - there have been many. Maybe you are already in business and are looking for help. Hopefully, you can find it from one of these companies.
