Entrepreneur, speaker and author Jay Maharjan's latest book is Winning Lessons for Entrepreneurs in the Conceptual Economy.
A new economic model is unfolding gradually before our eyes, but the future remains unclear. While we don't yet fully understand this new model, one thing is for sure: The Knowledge economy we have come to know is changing.
With a unique background in engineering, art and management, Maharjan is singularly qualified to lay out the clear challenges and opportunities that both entrepreneurs and the workforce will encounter in this new economy. Through personal anecdotes -- ranging from his first internship where he devised an entrepreneurial solution that saved Chrysler millions...to his successful launching and scaling of companies in multiple verticals -- Maharjan provides the reader with a roadmap for navigating the changing economic landscape.
Jay started his entrepreneurial career in 2001 with one of his earlier companies selected as THE 'start up' company that was ahead of its time -- to embrace risk-taking in open-source innovation. He also produced and hosted over 20 entrepreneur television series that aired on the national and regional media outlets.
His unbiased leadership work related to fostering entrepreneurship and local economies has been recognized by leadership at various levels.
