The Founder's Dilemmas

Anticipating and Avoiding the Pitfalls That Can Sink a Startup (The Kauffman Foundation Series on Innovation and Entrepreneurship)

Noam Wasserman

Learn from the experiences of successful entrepreneurs and avoid the common pitfalls of starting a business in The Founder's Dilemmas. Noam Wasserman draws on a decade of research and real life examples to explore the difficult decision of whether to bring in co-founders, hires, or investors to help build a promising startup. Discover how to split equity within a founding team, recognize when a founder-CEO should exit or be fired, and avoid disastrous mistakes that can strip founders of control and leave them without a financial payoff. With solutions grounded in quantitative data and insider stories of founders like Twitter's Evan Williams and Pandora's Tim Westergren, The Founder's Dilemmas is the ultimate guide to navigating people problems and achieving startup success.
