While everyone talks about the start-up companies coming out of Silicon Valley, there are many start-ups of different kinds in scholarly communications. Some of these are for-profit, but some are not-for-profit. This panel, which consists of the heads of three start-ups, will survey the special issues start-ups face. Where did the idea for the company come from? Why do this as a start-up instead of creating it inside an established company? How did you finance the organization? What are the key things that the leaders of start-ups must do to be successful? The panel's presentations will be followed by a Q&A period.
