I hope the book will help entrepreneurs level the playing field when pursuing VC capital so that they can secure the necessary resources to achieve their vision. In the book, I reveal industry insights drawn from my experience as a practicing VC. I also include the perspectives of some of the leading entrepreneurs and VCs in the industry, who were kind enough to divulge their own secrets about their approach to the business. I wrote the book not only to share this knowledge, but also because I strongly believe in the importance of the venture-backed start-up to our economy and our society as a whole.
Over the next decade, hundreds of billions of dollars will be invested in new or young companies and it is critical that this capital be invested wisely. Mastering the VC Game will help entrepreneurs be more effective in financing and launching start-ups and in creating companies that benefit us all, while also providing insight into the critical role these enterprises play in the global economy.
Therefore, I have chosen to donate a portion of my proceeds to Endeavor, a non-profit dedicated to transforming emerging market economies through entrepreneurship. Founder/CEO Linda Rottenberg was a college classmate of mine with whom I did volunteer work in Boston's inner city schools and I have always admired her passion for helping others help themselves. Endeavor entrepreneurs have created over 38,000 jobs throughout the world. To learn more visit endeavor.org.
