Sarah Lacy

Sarah Lacy knows great entrepreneurs. After more than a decade covering business in Silicon Valley, Lacy decided to follow the flow of capital into the developing world. She bootstrapped a two-year, 40-week journey through the Middle East, South America, Africa, India, China, and Southeast Asia looking for the best entrepreneurs Silicon Valley had never heard of. The result is her second book, Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky: How the Top 1% of Entrepreneurs Profit from Global Chaos, which Fortune called "an outstanding piece of journalism" (Wiley, February 2011). [+]
