9781439206874: Entrepreneur Journeys Volume 1

In Entrepreneur Journeys, Volume One, serial entrepreneur and Forbes columnist Sramana Mitra offers you a seat at the table with an eclectic group of successful entrepreneurs and delivers an intimate look at how to build a thriving business.

 

As one entrepreneur speaks with another, readers gain access to case studies—conversations really—exploring the alleys of entrepreneurship in a way that only an experienced strategist like Mitra can probe and extract.  Her synthesis of key learnings and incisive analysis add great depth to discussions on bootstrapping, disruptive business models, and addressing unmet market needs.

 

Entrepreneur Journeys is accessible through its story-telling narrative, and at the same time academic in its depth of insight.  This is a book that is sure to please anyone interested in building a new business, but is essential reading for every technology entrepreneur.

 

“Inspiration awaits readers in this volume of interviews with entrepreneurs.  [Entrepreneur Journeys] will provide great insight into the questions and answers behind a start-up business.  It succeeds in sharing the enthusiasm and sense of adventure of these technological pioneers.”

About the Author:

Sramana Mitra is a technology entrepreneur and strategy consultant in Silicon Valley. She has founded three companies, writes a weekly column for Forbes and the business blog Sramana Mitra on Strategy. She has a master's degree in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT.

Online Roundtables for Entrepreneurs:
Sramana Mitra offers a series of free online roundtables to mentor and help entrepreneurs further develop their business ideas. In these roundtables, she also addresses financing strategy for each business.

During each 60-minute online session, entrepreneurs are invited to pitch Sramana their ideas in a three-minute presentation. She reviews the material in real time and provides feedback on each pitch, as well as addresses specific questions from the entrepreneur. Afterward, she takes questions from other participants. Each session is open to 1,000 people but only the first five to sign up have the opportunity to pitch Sramana and discuss their business in an interactive mode.

You can find more information about these webinars, recordings of past roundtables and registration links to upcoming sessions on the Roundtables page of her blog, "Sramana Mitra On Strategy".

"Sramana has gifted us with the first hand stories of industry legends who have succeeded with a combination of fierce resolve, self-reliance, and a willingness to buck conventional wisdom. The next generation of entrepreneurs has an invaluable reference guide on how their predecessors have succeeded."
- Richard Rommel, Senior Vice President, Emerging Business, Best Buy

"Entrepreneurship is not a career. It is a way of life. And what better way to learn about it than to listen to people who have done it, successfully, and to learn about their lives in that fast lane? In a carefully structured set of interviews, Sramana Mitra gives the readers an opportunity to discover their paths, their successes, their setbacks sometimes, and the joys of meeting the immense challenges that have been theirs in a dizzying world where technical competence and management skills have allowed them to leave a deep and lasting mark."
- Professor Elisabeth Paté-Cornell, Chair, Department of Management Science and Engineering, Stanford University

"Sramana Mitra is herself a symbol of everything that is great about America: a geek, an entrepreneur, an immigrant, a leader. In "Entrepreneur Journeys" she has taken on the task of modeling how entrepreneurs transform economies into resilient, growing systems that provide a future for our children."
- Stewart Alsop

Prologue

Entrepreneurship is not a career. It is a way of life.

For me, this journey began as a graduate student at MIT in 1994. The world watched Netscape go public a year later, and the Internet swept over us like a virus. As I wrote my Masters thesis, I also wrote my first business plan. We were, as a generation, shaping the Internet during those early years, and, my degree in hand, I was ready to jump into the unknown – from then on really, I have been jumping into unknowns at every turn.

Fortunately I’ve had great mentors – people who took an interest in my destiny, stopped along the way, and taught me a thing or two.

In turn, I have tried to stop along the way to pass on certain nuggets of my own learning. In the summer of 2006, as the technology industry resurfaced from the nuclear winter that followed the dotcom meltdown, I was invited to speak at a startup workshop. My session was supposed to focus on Positioning. At a Silicon Valley law firm, some sixty entrepreneurs packed a conference room to listen to me. I asked each to pitch his business idea in one minute, following which I gave feedback for another minute or two. My 90-minute rapid-fire session, alas, was not enough to accommodate all the pitches. In the lobby, even as we spilled onto the front steps, I tried to respond to some more, but it was hardly satisfactory. In fact, it has always frustrated me to realize that I did not have enough time in my day to stop for each entrepreneur who asked for guidance. Friends – seasoned entrepreneurs – have expressed the same frustration.


“Entrepreneur Journeys” is my attempt to capture that tribal knowledge accumulated in the private lives of great entrepreneurs – and give it shape, form, color, and a broad reach.

Imagine.

As you curl up in bed with this book of short stories, you are effectively transported across the table from each of the entrepreneurs, listening to their stories. You’ll learn, as I have learned, from their real-time experiences. All those dinners, lunches, coffees, teas, and glasses of wine from which so many stories have flowed – I invite you to experience them with me. Seated in the living room with Sridhar Vembu; lounging at Coupa Café in Palo Alto with Philippe Courtot; on the patio of Woodside Bakery, perhaps, your lunch companion is Russ Fradin.

Listen to their stories. Watch how they formulate ideas, navigate turbulent waters, create strategies, change directions, and make choices.

Listen. Learn. Empathize. Agree. Disagree. Develop your own point of view.

Most of all, I hope you find inspiration in these conversations – enough to help you become great entrepreneurs yourselves. For in entrepreneurship, I believe, lie solutions to many of the problems facing our modern world.
