Founders tips - Issue #65

You know it’s a recurring theme with me: Reading
Reading is essential for anyone in our industry, why?
1) We always learn from past experiences. It helps accelerate your learning curve and make you better at what you do.
2) Read helps broaden your horizons and be sharper and educated to define your vision and ambition.
All VCs I admire, like Marc Andreessen, read a lot (even his twitter profile is read with me.)

As I told you, I read Blitzscaling, next one is Modern Monopolies: What It Takes to Dominate the 21st Century Economy by Alex Moazed and Nicholas L. Johnson.

For those who didn’t read (Yet;) Blitzscaling you will find in A better company section: 7 Counterintuitive Rules for Growing Your Business Super-Fast by Reid himself,


And Dear First-time Angel Investor by Roy Bahat will help you detect and guide first-time investors.

I’m reading almost 2 hours a day. I’m sure you can take 30 mins of your week to read the articles we have curated for you. It seems to be a largely achievable objective…

Enjoy your week.
