The unlikely yet amazing story of how a few daring men called "venture capitalists" came to back a few imaginative individuals called "entrepreneurs" to create some of America's most successful businesses. Their risk was great but their reward was even greater; proof of what's possible when individuals are willing and able to take a chance on a new idea.

I thought this was one of the best video for my Small Business Management class. I think it made them think about how businesses got started from just an idea...but no money.
