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.

<ASIN:0231194528>

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.
