A listener-friendly guide to the inner workings and behind-the-scenes action of Silicon Valley and venture capitalism.
Investigative reporter Gary Rivlin gives an armchair tour of the world of venture capitalism, while providing vivid case studies illustrating how to get started in the field. He shows how once-small companies such as Facebook, Instagram, and Amazon used venture capitalism to transform into the icons they are today, and the VCs that made a fortune in the process. Listeners will learn what series funding is, the difference between an angel and super angel investor, and how to go about identifying ideas worthy of funding.
Becoming a Venture Capitalist is not only an exclusive look into the world of legendary venture firms - as well as stories of their most interesting characters, including Peter Thiel, Reid Hoffman, and Mark Zuckerberg - but a wonderful guide on how to break into a seemingly impenetrable world.

The book touched on very delicate topics about how difficult it is coming to ones realization on what they must do. I am going to use this as a guide to becoming a venture capitalist in Africa.

Far Too Short
The book was a nice take on VC because it was told more as a story. But at only 8 chapters it lacked length and depth.
