On a Shoestring

High Tech

It's hardly a newsflash that some of the hottest start-ups are in the tech world. What many aspiring entrepreneurs don't realize, however, is you don't need lots of money to get into the field. Computer-repair pro-fessionals, Web designers, tech writers and high-tech PR specialists often work from home using basic office equipment.

When Bob Cesca finally got tired of his regular gigs as a radio announcer and a graphic designer, the Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, resident, now 29, launched Camp Chaos, a production company specializing in creating animated Internet cartoons. The business began simply as a personal Web page in July 1998.

Now readers from around the world click on Cesca's Web page to keep up with cartoons like This Thing Of Ours and Monkey for President.

And business is particularly good. Camp Chaos is grossing $1 million in 2000 already.
