Advance Praise for Entering StartUpLand:
Brad Feld, Managing Director, Foundry Group; cofounder, Techstars--
"The world is full of books for founders, but there are very few books for joiners. Entering StartUpLand provides an invaluable, step-by-step guide to various startup roles and responsibilities. A must-read for both aspiring and experienced visitors to StartUpLand!"
Eric Ries, author, The Lean Startup--
"Just as the The Lean Startup has become a must-read for founders, Entering StartUpLand should be required reading for any joiner. The book is a sweeping and insightful view into a startup's full range of operations and entry points. I highly recommend it."
Danielle Morrill, cofounder and CEO, Mattermark--
"Joining startups early in my career changed the trajectory of my career, and my life, in ways I never could have imagined. For those curious and brave enough to take a detour from the more predictable path of corporate life, Entering StartUpLand is a valuable guide to making the leap and understanding how startups work. I wish this book had been around for me, my coworkers, and my employees these past ten years."
Tom Eisenmann, Professor of Entrepreneurship, Harvard Business School--
"Startups are changing the world, but it can be hard for outsiders to figure out how to join one. This book is a breakthrough. It describes the different roles at startups, the skills you need to succeed in them, and the best path for acquiring those skills and landing a great job."
