How to Solve Your ‘Series A Crunch’: Read this Book

By Mark Gorenberg

More entrepreneurs than ever before are getting seed funded.  So despite the significant amount of Series A venture capital money available, the law of numbers say that most young companies will struggle to find VC funding. The press is now calling this struggle for funds the “Series A Crunch”.  If you are an entrepreneur and you want to make it through this tough passage, I strongly suggest that you get Bill Aulet’s book Disciplined Entrepreneurship: 24 Steps to a Successful Startup and use it as your guide.  It provides a prescriptive checklist of what you need to do in order to build a company and make yourself attractive to series A investors like myself.
