    It is a cold, hard fact of business life that most startups fail. Even many of those entrepreneurs who ultimately succeed have stories of personal challenges, unsuccessful companies, and difficulties along the way. The founders of TechStars, a mentorship-driven startup accelerator, have worked with entrepreneurs and companies over the past twenty-five years, and have seen a number of the same issues come up again and again.

    Story

    There are lots of books that offer advice on how to start a company – but the vast majority are wrong. As Enterprise Editor for the Financial Times, Jonathan Moules has profiled hundreds of companies and their owners. Here, he uses this knowledge to explain why, in many cases, the received wisdom on entrepreneurship isn’t necessarily the best way of achieving success.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I always believe investing in your own self is time well-spent. Listening to this book gave me a greater perspective on global competition or global copycats which take a great US concept and apply it else where (UK etc). Yes, the great entrepreneurs do different things than the rest, and their are often commonalities in those things, however one should not read the title and think it gives them the license to be crazy. But then again...every entrepreneur has their own dice, risk, dollars they're betting on.

  • Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist

    Story

    As each new generation of entrepreneurs emerges, there is a renewed interest in how venture capital deals come together. Yet there really is no definitive guide to venture capital deals. Nobody understands this better than authors Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson. For more than seventeen years, they've been involved in hundreds of venture capital financings, and now, with Venture Deals, they share their experiences in this field with you.

    "An Entrepreneur library MUST"

    Story
    Would you listen to Venture Deals again? Why?

    This book is packed with facts about the deal. If you've ever had a business, thought about investing in someone's business, its more than just equity at stake. The contracts Feld goes through in this book break it down line by line, explaining what is normal, vs when one person (the investor or entrepreneur) is getting the upper hand. Real life examples, candid opinions -- this is everything I wish lawyers, mentors, or teachers should have told me years ago but didn't. I imagine listening to this book once or twice a year to stay sharp.
