Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

A Dozen Lessons for Entrepreneurs shows how the insights of leading venture capitalists can teach readers to create a unique approach to building a successful business. Through profiles and interviews of figures such as Bill Gurley of Benchmark Capital, Marc Andreesen and Ben Horowitz of Andreesen Horowitz, and Jenny Lee of GGV Capital, Tren Griffin draws out the fundamental lessons from their ideas and experiences. Entrepreneurs should learn from past successes but also be prepared to break new ground. While there are best practices, there is no single recipe they should follow. By better understanding the views and experiences of a wide range of successful venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, readers can discern which of many possible paths will lead to success.


As an entrepreneur and investor, I have long enjoyed Tren’s famous ‘Twelve Lessons” posts over the years. Tren captures invaluable wisdom on entrepreneurship from every angle. Tren does not proclaim to have the ‘right answers,’ nor does he subscribe to a plan for the unforeseeable. Instead, he captures and analyzes the gems from a long list of enterprising minds that break new ground in their respective fields.
—from the foreword by Scott Belsky

When I first came to Silicon Valley, I was struck by how much people teach and learn from one another. In this book, Tren continues that spirit by sharing his own learning from others—and explains how investment judgments and decisions are made in the world of tech start-ups.
—Marc Andreessen

The book is among a select few to categorize the key learnings of leading VCs.
—Chris Goulakos
