Publisher's Summary

In Build the Fort, Heivly breaks down his personal fort-building experiences and uses them as an analogy to his journey as co-founder of MapQuest as well as The Startup Factory (a seed-stage investor & mentorship program). Build the Fort outlines five basic elements that are common to both fort-building and startups:

  • Socializing your idea without fear or inhibition,
  • Identifying and marshaling the people you trust,
  • Gathering the minimal resources closest to you,
  • Acting on the smallest and simplest of the idea, and
  • Build the fort.

Whether you are 16 or 60, Build the Fort will provide the listener a better understanding of the earliest micro-steps of starting your own business by overlaying Chris' 30 years of experiences in startups, investments, big-company intrapreneurship, and community development.
