NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 12, 2015) - Springboard Enterprises and leading independent eBook publisher RosettaBooks announce the release of Been There, Run That (eBook $5.99; Hardcover $27.00), an anthology of best practices by leaders in the fields of tech, media, e-commerce and the life sciences edited by Kay Koplovitz.

Koplovitz is the founder of USA Network and the Syfy Channel -- the first woman network president in television history -- and Chairman and Co-creator of Springboard Enterprises. Springboard has been behind some of today's most successful companies including Zipcar, ConstantContact and iRobot.

"Been There, Run That comes alive with the collective wisdom of 45 entrepreneurs and advisors who have done it all," says Kay Koplovitz. "This is the place to tune up entrepreneurial skills that will drive your business to greater success."

In the book, Koplovitz provides her own keen insights for each topic, arming readers with a useful toolkit loaded with many ideas for jumpstarting their businesses, careers or their lives in general.

Been There, Run That is a great resource to add to any entrepreneurial library, whether it's the first business or one of many in a long line. With real experiences conveyed by real women who have "run that," the reader feels as though they are receiving personal advice from those who know.

All of the author's net proceeds from Been There, Run That will benefit Springboard Enterprises.

Koplovitz is a respected industry leader, developing the groundbreaking business model that remains the basis for cable network businesses today. After USA Networks was sold in 1998, Koplovitz turned to venture capital funders to raise money for new business ideas. She is the author of Bold Women, Big Ideas.
