Talks at Google welcomes Larry Ingrassia, the author of BILLION DOLLAR BRAND CLUB. He explains the many ways that technology has leveled the playing field, and how these entrepreneurs seized the opportunity to do what would have been unthinkable a decade ago.

What did they see that others missed? What were the ingredients of success, and what does it say about the changing consumer product landscape?
