From the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Abundance comes their much anticipated follow-up: Bolda€”a radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while also positively impacting the lives of billions. Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting todaya€™s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from qIa€™ve got an ideaq to qI run a billion-dollar companyq far faster than ever before.
