Now he draws on his unique perspective to offer high-level insights, colorful stories, and practical advice gathered from his own experience as well as from interviews with dozens of the most successful entrepreneurs and VCs. He reveals how to get noticed, perfect a pitch, and negotiate a partnership that works for everyone.

    Over the last 20 years in high technology, I have participated in six venture capital based start-ups. I only wish that I had this book twenty years ago.

    Definitive Book on How Venture Capital Works

    Jeff Bussgang has written the definitive book on how venture capital works. Jeff was previously a multi-time entrepreneur and is now an experienced VC. He combines real world stories (his and others) with interviews and analysis is a very logical and readable format to explain the dynamics of VC and venture-backed companies.

    I've read a lot of books on this subject, was an entrepreneur for 10 years and have been a VC for 15 years. Jeff's book is by far the best to date on this subject.
