An easy and insightful read

I have been in entrepreneurial world close to a decade both internationally and in the US. The literature and the experiences have been always Silicon Valley biased. Thus, reading this book and hearing the author’s story were worthwhile to confirm my points of view. Highly recommend to first time entrepreneurs.

I recently came across Mike Belsito, because we're authors in a similar space.

Excellent book that really should be required reading for all those thinking of starting a business.

Mike Belsito is authentic and shares his hard won knowledge of the startup process. I've been looking for a book on seed funding for months, and have read multiple that didn't fit the bill, until I found this one.

This book answers important questions like, should you take investments from friends and family? how much should you raise? how to find investors? what are the best investors for you?

Simple, clear, concise. A solid narrative on startup outside The Valley, with practical hands-on advice on navigating the seed funding game. Recommended for the business founder just getting their startup off the ground.

Great book! As the author says "reading this book won't necessarily make the process of raising $1 million for your startup ventura a walk in the park" but it's good to understand some things about founding outside the big startup hubs.

“When we’re considering investing in a startup, we first want to know that the entrepreneur has a clear understanding of the market. Who are the major players? What about this market is ripe for disruption? What is this startup’s unfair advantage to disrupt this market? In the first conversation we have with a company, these are questions that we’re looking for clear answers to.” 0 likes
“Traction is what separates a viable business from a really good idea. It’s what shows that your business can grow and sustain itself. It’s a way to show that a dollar invested into your business will always result in three dollars of revenue. It’s the proof that your business model isn’t based on assumptions, but on actual hard data.” 0 likes
