The Founder's Manifest helps entrepreneurs develop Founder Competency-qualities and skills that a new founder must possess for product launch and startup operation. A product idea-no matter how great or revolutionary-will not see a long life if its founder executes poorly. This book helps new founders avoid common missteps, develop competency, prepare well for their role and entrepreneurial journey, and increase their chances of success.
The Founder's Manifest employs the sea voyage metaphor with the founder at the helm. It aims to help the founder-captain think about his/her role strategically throughout the entire venture-for herself, her crew, her product, and her operation. The book's integrated mindset and approach reflect the belief that proper planning prevents poor performance. Included in the book are Founder Insights, Startup Anecdotes, and exercises to help aspiring founders complete thorough due diligence and preparation.
The Founder's Manifest is a must-read for aspiring founders of any age, race, gender, creed, background, or ability to learn. It's for anyone who contemplates starting his/her own business-whether profit or non-profit, whether it's a neighborhood shop owner, a service provider, a manufacturing firm, or a tech startup. This includes:
1) Seasoned professionals with deep expertise in their field but no experience in starting and running a new company,
2) College students, recent graduates, MBA candidates, as well as graduate students; and
3) Those who don't have time or money for entrepreneurial degree programs-professionals, breadwinners, working spouses, stay-at-home parents, single parents, veterans, and retirees.
