Summary and Info
One key reason for the dot.com collapse was insufficient understanding of the realities of venture funding and managing entrepreneurial organizations. In From Concept to Wall Street, two of the world's leading experts in venture-backed entrepreneurship offer a start-to-finish guide to the entire process: starting new companies, identifying and negotiating funding, and managing to -- and through -- IPOs or M&As. Drawing on their immense personal experience on both sides of the table -- and the hard lessons of recent years -- Owen Furst and Uri Geiger offer a complete roadmap for both investors and entrepreneurs. They begin with detailed guidance on the startup process: evaluating ideas, assembling initial teams, establishing companies, defining strategies, recruiting key employees, registering intellectual property, and more. Next, they review the startup's cash requirements and potential sources of capital, and walk through the process of capital raising, with a close look at valuation, and at the typical contractual arrangements between funders and entrepreneurs. The book includes a full section on venture capital entities and institutions, ranging from VC funds to angels; then presents in-depth coverage of IPOs, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, and even dissolution of failed enterprises.
