Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Forbes for May 7th, 2012 from Audible. This edition contains seven feature articles.

In the cover story, we'll tell you about “The Moneymakers” - Reid Hoffman and Peter Thiel Share the Secrets of Breaking into Tech's Most Exclusive Network.

Also, “Andreesen, Horowitz: Venture Capital's New Bad Boys” - Borrowing a page from Mike Ovitz, literally, Marc Andreesen and Ben Horowitz have created a VC firm that acts like a Hollywood talent agency - and has every entrepreneur in Silicon Valley flocking to their door.

Next, “Larry Gagosian, Andy Warhol, and the Rise of the Superdealer” - Superdealers like Larry Gagosian can trace their celebrity lineage to Andy Warhol.

Then, “From Gay to Pay: How Fab.com Became the Hottest Online Retailer” - Fab flopped as a social network for gays. As a site selling quirky design products, it reached a million members faster than just about any other online retailer.

We'll also tell you about, “The 26-Year-Old VC Who Cashed in on Instagram” - Joshua Kushner is only 26. But he's already backed some of today's hottest startups, including Instagram.

Followed by, “Timid Investor's Guide to Emerging Markets” - Are you staying close to home with your portfolio? That's a risky bet.

And in our final story, “How to Launch a Billion-Dollar Startup on a Shoestring” - Getting a tech company going is so cheap now that failure is an annoyance, not a disaster.
