Imagine I want to start an online marketplace for used cars in a country which hitherto has no such online platform. I can either try "reinventing the wheel" or just walk the very same path of other startups who created car marketplaces. So my question is: Where can I find literature, whether academic or not, that details a wide range of case studies of startups? In other words: Where can I find case studies that allow me to "clone" startups of a wide range of fields? Preferable those case studies should be very detailed basically enabling you to duplicate the startup, not just mere "stories" but studies. Thanks.
I can't offer you studies, but after years of working with startups and entrepreneurs from around the world, we developed an online platform that provides the tools and resources to take any idea from concept and grow it into a profitable business. Its called Idea Essentials and can be found at www.ideaessentials.com
It was developed exactly for people in your situation.
I wish you the bets of luck.
