|Startup Myths and Models (Columbia Business School Publishing)|
|Friday, 12 June 2020|
This witty guide to the dilemmas of entrepreneurship, subtitled "What You Won't Learn in Business School" debunks widespread misconceptions about how the world of startups works and offers hard-earned advice for every step of the journey. Instead of startup myths―legends spun from a fantasy version of Silicon Valley― author Rizwan Virk provides startup models―frameworks that help make thoughtful decisions about starting, growing, managing, and selling a business.
Virk combines lessons learned the hard way during his twenty-five years of founding, investing in, and advising startups with reflections from well-known venture capitalists and experts. He points out the pitfalls that appear along the way and offers insights into how to avoid them, sharing the secrets of founding a startup, raising money, hiring and firing, when to enter a market and when to exit, and how to value a company.
