A good one!

The book is quite detailed and has helpful content for aspiring entrepreneurs and experienced ones alike. The only drawback : sometimes it feels like dragging on certain topics for too long.

Not for the average.

It's a good book if you're looking to up your fundraising game. But, if you're looking for start up fundraising advice as an average consumer who want to start their first start up, this book isn't going to help much. The book assumes you know a good amount of the inner workings of the business/investment industry.

Pretty Shallow

This talks about the basics of getting in front of potential investors but doesn't talk about any useful mechanics of how contracts work, features to look out for, funding features, and so on.

Articulate, and genuinely valuable.

I stumbled upon this book at the beginning of my fund-raising journey. It is of incredible value, and an absolute joy to listen to.
Worth the money and more. Also it lead me to the service that Alejandro and Mike are currently offering. These guys know what they're doing. I loved the narrator too.

Better than expected...

Some of the low rated reviews lowered my expectations, but I positively surprised... Very helpful ideas and insights, not for your 3 round of funding, but for the first for sure.

very superficial advice

the author keeps it at a very generic level making it no more than a light reading for beginners. I'm happy I listened to the audible version so that I won't waste money on the paper version to go into my library.

Good but good go into more detail

It's a good book I learned a few things but there was no mention of how much equity investors look for in each round or any advice on how much to offer in each round etc. This info is very important because any startup is going to ask them very quickly
