Have you identified the top talent in your organization—the individuals with the potential to create massive value?

Capturing the next billion-dollar opportunity requires leaders who differ in important ways from the people who are typically valued and promoted in organizations. In the first systematic research study of self-made billionaires, PwC has identified the traits that have enabled the most successful entrepreneurs—including Howard Schultz of Starbucks, Steve Case of AOL, and Sara Blakely of Spanx—to see future trends, tap into opportunities, and build organizations worth billions.

Do you have the talent your business needs to seize the next billion-dollar opportunity? Read The Self-Made Billionaire Effect, PwC’s new big idea book, and contact the authors to have a conversation or explore a speaking opportunity.
