Over the past 20 years, Andy has worked as an analyst for investment bankers and venture capitalists in top corporations.

Mr. Kessler’s rich professional experience is shown in his articles and books. He has been published in “The Wall Street Journal”, “The New York Times”, “Wired”, “Forbes and other influential periodical publications.

In 2011, Kessler published a book entitled “Eat People”. According to the publisher of Forbes magazine, Rich Karlgaard, the book “should be read by every entrepreneur.”

Darwin’s theory of natural section does not solely apply to the natural world, but also to business – those companies that quickly and precisely evaluate market opportunities, not being afraid of radical new ideas, processes, or products, are doing much better than others. For start-ups it is even more true: a new firm needs to give the consumer something completely new, memorable, original, - and, if you approach business intelligently, unimaginable wealth will rain down upon you. In order to learn how to do this, it is enough to follow his 12 simple rules.

What these rules are, Andy Kessler discussed on March 20th.
