It was a heady time when the century turned.

Things were going great right until the moment when they weren't. The tech boom was at its zenith. Mergers and acquisitions were at an all-time high. The Dow was racing toward 14,000 and the all- important tech-saturated NASDAQ was at 5,000. Money was flowing and success was around every corner.

Then the tech bubble burst, destroying a number of myths. Chief among them was the idea that all it took for a young entrepreneur with a great idea to succeed was more money. VCs fueled the illusion that any new company could be the next big thing with just a little more capital and time. Much more often than not, it didn't work out that way.

The Conspiracy is the story of one such company, KnowledgeMover. It is fictional. And very true.

The Conspiracy is a business fable that explores why start-ups thrive and how they die. Seen through the eyes of John Davis, brilliant young founder and CEO of the next big thing, the book provides a thought-provoking, cautionary view from the top down and bottom up for those who ride the roller coaster from start-up to success.
