  • How to find your first customers
  • A founder's take on making your first hire
  • Everything you need to know about fundraising and much more…

Don’t take our word for it

Kind of wish my books had been so beautifully designed. I’m only a few pages in but I can already tell this book is a keeper. Nice work!
