    Twice a year in the heart of Silicon Valley, a small investment firm called Y Combinator selects an elite group of young entrepreneurs from around the world for three months of intense work and instruction. Their brand-new two- or three-person start-ups are given a seemingly impossible challenge: to turn a raw idea into a viable business, fast.

    Tyler says: "Great background on what it takes on startups"
    "Nice Window on the Start Up Ecosystem"

    If you could sum up The Launch Pad in three words, what would they be?

    Anecdotal But Motivating


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Launch Pad?

    I learned of a couple of start ups I hadn't heard of before that prompted me to research them further.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen on 1.5x speed and it was great. The narrators voice lent itself to the increased speed and I didn't get bored with the content. It moved along at a great pace for me. I would recommend this book to younger audiences - high school or college - as it will open up their thoughts to bigger things but also realize the perfect 'idea' isn't always the most important element to success. Leadership, vision and learning to pivot are common themes to the YC world.
