What Happened at Urban Box Office

from the a-look-inside dept

Yet another story of a dot com failure. This one is about the Urban Box Office Network. It’s a little different in that it’s written by an insider – someone who worked there. Also, while it follows some similar patterns to other dot com failures (too big a vision, too sure of themselves, over hiring initially) there are some differences. One of the main ones is that the founder and visionary of the company died before they could launch, which may have lead to a loss of true leadership within the company. Definitely an interesting story.
