GigaNet, Inc. describes the effort of a 20 year computer industry veteran to transform a small telecommunications engineering firm into a viable networking technology company. Faced with an uphill battle to convince venture capitalists to invest in the company after the founders decided to seek funding from third tier venture firms, he finally wins $30 million in new investment from a consortium of high quality investors. Before the deal is finalized however, he receives an offer to buy the company from a larger rival. He now must choose between accepting the $30 million and launching an IPO in 18 months and selling the company.
