Praise for Will It Fly?

Praise for Will It Fly?

“The markets taught us lessons I hope we never forget. McKnight weaves those lessons into a book that allows us to see into the future of our new business ideas. The next big thing needs to stand on solid financial ground, and that’s where McKnight steps in to help tomorrow’s innovators and entrepreneurs.”

—U.S. Rep. Michael G. Oxley (Fourth Ohio District)
Co-author, Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002

“This book could only have been crafted in the crucible of launching new businesses in the classroom, something about which I have considerable experience. Clearly, McKnight has touched upon 44 critical elements of success and if you can score well, you could be on your way to a huge win. Buy it, use it, and keep it on your desk for repeated reference. It is indeed that good.”

—Dr. John W. Altman
Robert E. Weissman Professor, Babson College and
Vice President, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

“McKnight’s work involves creating new businesses in the classroom and it is not a surprise to see a tool as effective as ’Innovators Scorecard’ grow from his teaching. The class could not proceed without a hard hitting up front screen for all the ideas the students would bring into the room.”

—Professor Murray B. Low
Lang Center for Entrepreneurship, Columbia Business School

“This Scorecard is a great analytical tool. Had it been available a few years ago, we could have saved ourselves about $5 billion.”

—Robert J. Wussler
President and CEO, Ted Turner Pictures

“Over the boom and bust of the late 1990s and first couple of years of the 21st century, it is clear that a tool such as McKnight’s ’Innovator’s Scorecard’ would have saved the country many billions of dollars in losses and heartache. Every venture capitalist, lawyer, and accountant should require their new venture clients to score well before they commit their valuable resources.”

—Thomas Curley
former President, USA Today
