Entrepreneurialism

  1. "The Essence of Small Business" - Colin Barrow
  2. "The Business Plan Workbook" - Barrow
  3. "Portable MBA in Entrepreneurship" - Bygrave
  4. "Small Business Management - Case Studies" - Stokes.
  5. "Making it Big in Software" - Peter McHugh
Of these I am familiar with 1.; 2-4 are taken from the booklist for the MBA course in small businesses. The first two are fairly cheap paperbacks; the third is rather more expensive. I have had a quick look at the McHugh book. It deals with the UK which is a big advantage but is really aimed at businesses which are a bit past the embryo startup phase and at £25 is quite expensive unless you are approaching that stage. Some useful hints and tips though

The Technology Ventures booklet was "A Guide to Technology Support in Scotland" published by Technology Ventures (their URL is in the slides).
