A Modern Dot-Com

It's not easy starting a business. Fahad Hassan has had to "work tirelessly to solicit venture capital money and to manage employees who are old enough to be his parents," writes Washington Post Staff Writer Zachary Goldfarb.

Hassan started Daylert, a social networking place similar to Facebook or Myspace, but including features such as calendars and contacts alongside course management software favored by schools and colleges.

In the article on the front-page of the Business section, Goldfarb looks at the ups and downs of a dot-com executive in his early 20s, what inspired Hassan to start Daylert and how he keeps day-to-day operations going.
