Successful Small Business Idea|Atypical MBA.

by J.Crawford on January 2, 2009

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

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. 

Any Thoughts?

This is a great business idea. Its funny how life can provide us with unique and profitabl business ideas. Its much like having or meeting friends and hearing about that job you might want or meeting a person you might want to meet. It seems now a days they call all businesses “Green”, kinda sick of it myself. This is a great example of a truly green business idea. Great video and an obviously excited entrepreneur. Its neat to see the entrepreneurial spirit brought alive by this business idea.
