Bill Gross' many business ideas
Bill Gross, the founder of Idealab, a business incubator, says he has learned valuable lessons from the successes; and the flops.
Gross, 53, is chief executive of Pasadena's Idealab, a business incubator that has spawned close to 100 companies since Gross founded it in 1996. Idealab companies span a range of industries, including renewable-energy firms like ESolar and Energy Cache, and well-known online services such as photo site Picasa, which was acquired by Google Inc. in 2004, and CitySearch, which merged with TicketMaster Online in 1998. Idealab is now developing nine separate companies at its headquarters on Union Street.
