Silicon Valley Venture Capitalist and Serial Entrepreneur teaches how to succeed in taking your startup from idea to product to company.
Accelerated Startup takes entrepreneurs through the startup minefield from fostering revolutionary ideas to building the right team and launching the product to raising angel and venture capital to finding the first 10,000 customers and ultimately taking the company to a successful exit. It is filled with practical lessons learned from years of hands-on experience, until now, available only in top startup accelerator programs.
"As startups take over the world of business, understanding how to create one is more important than ever. Vitaly explains how it is done in Silicon Valley, where the lessons can be applied to any entrepreneur in the world."

“If only every entrepreneur would read this book, they would save themselves huge amounts of pain and suffering. Vitaly guides you through not just the how, but also the why, of launching and growing a company.
