From the Mind to the Marketplace

Ever had a good idea for a new product …

but for 101 reasons you did not take it any further,

... then you find your brilliant idea on the shelves in Wal-Mart?


While the road from the mind to the marketplace is frustrating and far from easy, Jayne Seagrave’s highly entertaining book, From the Mind to the Marketplace: The Story of an Inventor, The Home Improvement Industry, His Wife and Her Lovers, sets out how to succeed in taking a new idea to market, how to expand those markets, and how to effectively run a new business.


With over 90 percent of businesses in Canada being small businesses, this book provides exceptional insights into what it takes to establish and succeed in this growing arena.
