The Startup Game by venture capitalist Bill Draper is the first up-close look at how the relationship between venture capitalists and entrepreneurs is critical to the future of business. For more than 40 years, Bill Draper has worked with top entrepreneurs in fabled Silicon Valley, where today's vision is made into tomorrow's reality. From the VC who saw the value in Skype, Zappos, and many other companies, comes firsthand stories of success. In these pages Draper explores: / how to evaluate innovative ideas and the entrepreneurs behind those ideas (lessons from Yahoo, Baidu, Tesla Motors, Activision, Measurex, and more) / the value of political leadership in creating opportunity, including on-the-ground accounts of how Deng Xiaoping brought China roaring into the modern world. Written in an engaging narrative, and incorporating the author's own personal experience as well as other successful entrepreneurs, this book provides a much needed look at how the world of venture capital and entrepreneurship work.
