I was excited to get my copy of Brad and David’s book (via Amazon) last week. I served with Brad on the Microsoft Venture Capital Partner Advisory Committee for about 8 years and we get together every so often and compare notes. Brad is one of the deepest and most well networked people I know and David Cohen and Brad developed a premier early stage company mentorship program that had a significant effect on innovation and company formation.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to join the TechStars program, but the good news is that they assembled a great group of mentors and wrote a must-read book for entrepreneurs. The book is aimed at the early stage teams, but most of the points apply to expansion stage companies as well.
