An Atypical MBA? Whats That? This short post is about a “bright” business idea spawned from a non-traditional lifestyle and implement while earning an MBA an Stanford. Social Preneur Sam Goldman, during, peace corp work in Africa, recognized a need and that became a seed for a successful small business idea. I’ve included a video, and interview actually, with Sam as he answers a few questions about the start up D.lighting.
This is one of my favorite ideas I’ve come across as of late I hope you watch this video. Sam Golman, the founder of D. Lighting talks about how the idea came to him and briefly talks about bringing this successful business idea to life.

Great idea, huh? I think this is a well purposed idea and a neat story that brought the idea to light. Doing a little research, I see the idea has attracted the attention of needed investors with $6 million in funding already committed to the this “Bright” idea.
A take away here is that your everyday life can inspire great business ideas and implementing them in a team envirionment is probaly the most productive route to take. Also I see a strong element networking, probably going hand in hand with the team environment concept. Networking make teams possible. More networking can help the team and the business idea grow.
