What Women Entrepreneurs Need to Do - A "How to" for Science or English Majors.
While Michael S. Malone voiced concerns about underappreciated english majors in his Wall Street Journal article "How to Avoid a Bonfire of the Humanities", I discovered a hidden roadmap for success. If you want to start a business today, whether you are a science major or an english major, you should heed the advice given by Malone's friend, Silicon Valley veteran Santosh Jayaram, whom Malone quotes in his article. Jayaram lays out the way to get started in your first year very clearly. Spend your time finding an underserved market, which he calls "that one undeveloped niche". Also find yourself an "Angel", partners you want to work with, talented people to join your company, and code writers and programmers to build your products. And don't wait to start marketing! Michael's point about science and the humanities working side by side is a good one. Thanks for showing us how to do it.
