What People Are Saying

"Charlie Thomas is the complete American Entrepreneur. He has seen it all. He founded a company from scratch, took it public and grew to over $100 million in revenues, then experienced an unprecedented telecom meltdown that devastated an entire industry. In just a few years he rode a full business life cycle, something that normally takes generations and a number of CEOs. Thoughtful and candid, Charlie shares his exceptional entrepreneurial insights along with the lessons he learned -- all in terms that will prove invaluable to any would-be entrepreneur."
- Raymond Smith
  Former Chairman and CEO, Verizon
 

"Entrepreneurs are the backbone of American businesses and our great free enterprise system. Charlie Thomas is a prime example of an Entrepreneur.

"Charlie Thomas epitomizes the definition of an Entrepreneur. As a fellow technology entrepreneur in the D.C. region, I grew SIGNAL Corporation to revenue in excess of $250 million before selling to Veridian Corporation (NYSE:VNX) during the same time that Charlie was building Net2000 (NASDAQ:NTKK). His experience in founding and leading a company from scratch to one with over $150 million in revenues, 1200 employees, and an IPO -- and then presiding over the telecom implosion -- allowed him to live through most every conceivable entrepreneurial trial, tribulation, high and low. His lessons learned are invaluable to anyone interested in business."
