Quotes on the Secrets of Sand Hill Road

Eric Ries, bestselling author of The Lean Startup and The Startup Way, from the foreword

"Worth far more than its cover price ... I wish I’d had it available to me when I was first looking for startup funding"

Eric Schmidt, former executive chairman and CEO, Google; technical advisor, Alphabet Inc:

"As someone who helped a small company become a huge, valuable company, I know firsthand the power of the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurship. This is the definitive book on navigating VC as part of that"

Sam Altman, partner and president, Y Combinator; cofounder, OpenAI

"I’ve observed thousands of founders and thought a lot about what it takes to create something important and to achieve outlier success. Kupor’s book takes founders who want to do both through everything from how VCs raise money and evaluate deals, to how to think about term sheets and set up boards. It’s a valuable resource for any founder who wants to work with VCs"
