Using her own experiences as an entrepreneur, angel investor, and venture capitalist, Yesil discusses the Entrepreneurial Process. She walks the audience through the steps necessary to identify a winning idea, recruit a coherent team, define a roadmap based on concrete deliverables, choose financial partners, establish the right business development relationships, create a larger than life shadow, and ultimately guide the company to a liquidity event.

Would you listen to The Entrepreneurial Process again? Why?

Yes, mainly for the key items at the end; wish there was a way to add bookmarks on verbal command when in car mode on Audible.

If you’ve listened to books by Magdalena Yesil (Venture Partner and U.S. Venture Partners) before, how does this one compare?

Nothing to compare.

Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

Most companies rely on manipulations to attract customers and employees; they use short-term motivators that do not inspire or encourage loyalty. Customers who are not inspired will stop buying the product as soon as the company cannot keep up the manipulative strategies, and employees are less motivated and less productive when they are not inspired.

Would you consider the audio edition of Summary of Start with Why by Simon Sinek to be better than the print version?

No, but the great thing about this summary is that it includes an analysis which provides me details to consider buying the full versions, whether audio or print.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Summary of Start with Why by Simon Sinek?

The analysis - it provides enough details to consider the full version

Also, compared to some other summaries, the selection of summary material is better than most

Which character – as performed by Dwight Equitz – was your favorite?

This was non-fiction.

However, cadence, tone, etc. are better than most summaries I've listened to, which seem to be nearly childish in nature

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Where does The Lean Startup rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first audio book I've listened, but, being a voracious reader, I am fully impressed with the quality of the content and its immediate, pragmatic value for providing focus to an endeavor

What did you like best about this story?

Clear, pragmatic knowledge, not just a bunch of un-synthesized information - able to apply lessons as they are fully integrated, holistic.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The one thing I would improve is the pace of narration, and the energy. The pace was a bit slow, and lacked inflection and other 'energy' - very useful when driving.

Any additional comments?

Awesome book.
