This year, more than five million entrepreneurs will launch new ventures. Many of them believe they have the Next Big Thing. But very few startups live to see five years, and even fewer make it to 10. Even fewer still go on to become global success stories.
This audiobook is a practical guide to evaluating your business idea and a must-listen for all aspiring entrepreneurs.
Brad Feld and Dr. Sean Wise have been assessing startup opportunities for more than two decades. They have witnessed more than 30,000 pitches and participated in more than 500 startup launches. Now two of North America's leading minds in venture capital share how they determine which startups will succeed and which will fail.
This audiobook is indispensable for anybody who has ever thought about starting a business or fumbled their way through giving advice about starting a business.

Having just started to delve into the world of startups - I found this amazing. a lot I found fascinating and new as a 21 year old in uni and working in tech startups. Definitely fast tracked my learning and understanding - solidifying my hunger but also preparing me... I need to listen to this again and maybe buy the book. Great work.
This book is inspiring and full of knowledge on starting a business. It also covers in great detail all it takes to do it. I especially likes when it gives the prospective quotes from founders and investors.
"Great Info - Monotone Performance"
I don't believe this is the right question to ask. Different people have different opinions on print vs. audio, and you can't possibly please everybody. Print is great if you're trying to dig deep into the text or want to highlight things and have the whole readable text readily available. I would like that with this book in the future.
The mountain of helpful info and resources to continue my education.
I don't know enough about narrators to answer this question. Sean would be just fine if he varied up his tone and brought more emotion to the reading. He sounds robotic in this performance.
I am only part way through, but based on the material I don't think any particular moment will "move" me. It is all equally wonderful information.
"Lots of good resources for new entrepreneurs but.."
I like how they went into all the different stages of raising money and evaluating your idea.
The pronunciation of the words project, disqus and a few other repeating words were very distracting.
