A Book and a Chat with Glenn Ogura
In his book "Startup" Glenn displays all the skills of a veteran storyteller. Using much of his own working experience Glenn has created in "Startup" a roller-coaster ride of a book that finds the sweet spot between the legal suspense tales of John Grisham and the science-fiction thrillers of Michael Crichton.
Kirkus Reviews has hailed STARTUP as “a solid business thriller … reminiscent of John Grisham's THE FIRM.”
About "Startup" :
Set in California's Silicon Valley, "Startup" follows a young idealist/entrepreneur, Zack Penny, as he strives to achieve his dream of creating a new company that will launch an international revolution in technology through the creation of wallpaper-thin displays that will completely surround a viewer. Zack works for a highly successful company called Display Technik, run by CEO Allen Henley, whose vision is based on a success-at-all-costs philosophy. Zack sees Henley as a mentor, but Zack's philosophy favors high morals and values over Henley's ruthless, end-justifies-the-means model of doing business.
Zack's dream takes root one morning when he discovers an important paper has been taken from his office. Someone has exposed Zack's secret plan to break away from Display Technik and start his own company. Henley gives Zack another chance to pledge his loyalty to the firm, but Zack resigns instead, more determined than ever to realize his vision.
Soon, the optimistic if naive Zack steps into his new facility with high hopes for success. Henley, however, has already launched a plan to destroy Zack, his company, and Zack's relationship with Henley's daughter, Mary Anne.
Asked to describe his book Glenn says... “STARTUP is a story about greed and corruption … it addresses the issue of morals and ethics in business (and in life) which are certainly controversial topics in the headlines
