Get the inside scoop on what venture capitalists want to see in your startup as you hit the fundraising trail. This is the highly anticipated third edition of the best-selling book which has become the definitive resource for understanding venture capital fundraising. Whether you are an entrepreneur, lawyer, student or just have an interest in the venture capital ecosystem, Venture Deals is for you. The book dives deeply into how deals are constructed, why certain terms matter (and others don t), and more importantly, what motivates venture capitalists to propose certain outcomes. You ll see the process of negotiating from the eyes of two seasoned venture capitalists who have over 40 years of investing experience as VCs, LPs, angels, and founders. They will teach you how to develop a fundraising strategy that will be a win for all parties involved. This book is designed to bring transparency to the venture capital funding process and includes such topics as: * How to raise money; * What terms matter and which ones don t; * How to negotiate a fair deal for everyone; * What makes venture capitalists tick, including how they are compensated and motivated; * How companies are valued by venture capitalists; * How all current structures of funding work, including convertible debt, crowdfunding, pre-sales and other non-traditional methods; * How these particular issues change through different stages of financing (seed, early, mid and late); and * How to avoid business and legal pitfalls that many entrepreneurs make. And as in the previous editions, this book isn t just a one-sided opinion from venture capitalists, but also has helpful commentary throughout from a veteran CEO who has raised many rounds of financing from many different investors. If you are ready to learn all the secrets and ins and outs of fundraising, Venture Deals is an essential read.
- Decisive : How to Make Better Decisions by: Chip Heath £8.08Add to basket
Just making a decision can be hard enough, but how do you begin to judge whether it’s the right one? Chip and Dan Heath, authors of #1 New York Times best-seller Switch, show you how to overcome your brain’s natural shortcomings. In Decisive, Chip and Dan Heath draw on decades of psychological research to explain why we so often get it very badly wrong – why our supposedly rational brains are frequently tripped up by powerful biases and wishful thinking. At the same time they demonstrate how relatively easy it is to avoid the pitfalls and find the best answers, offering four simple principles that we can all learn and follow. In the process, they show why it is that experts frequently make mistakes. They demonstrate the perils of getting trapped in a narrow decision frame. And they explore people’s tendency to be over-confident about how their choices will unfold. Drawing on case studies as diverse as the downfall of Kodak and the inspiring account of a cancer survivor, they offer both a fascinating tour through the workings of our minds and an invaluable guide to making smarter decisions. Winner in the Practical Manager category of the CMI Management Book of the Year awards 2014.
