Introduction by the Author
Why Do I recommend it?
Venture Deals by Brad Feld is a must-read book if you want to raise venture capital.
It gives you a large number of insights into how the venture industry works, what terms you should watch out and many other aspects.
It's a book that I have read a bit too late (after 4 VC rounds already) and that I wish I had read before even starting with it...
So, if you're planning to raise venture money, I highly recommend this book.
