Five businessmen have yet to run into an idea or a product that is too far-fetched for them to invest in. These five friends have proven through grit, determination, street smarts and force of will that success does not always require MBAs. They use a "right connection" and their combined knowledge to continue to strive to be successful and have fun as they plan and grow their ideas toward greatness.
