ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the need for start-up business enterprises to sell to other businesses. He relates his decision to increase the price of FogBugz, a project management tool his firm Fog Creek Software make for software developers. He notes the tendency of consumers to be thrifty and price sensitive, which means a company does not make a lot of profit per sale. He presents an example explaining why it is hard for a start-up business to sell to consumers.
