Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Author: Mary Lemmer
Ever wonder what investors really think about your company? What do they really want to see? Straight from the Investor’s Mouth is full of pearls of wisdom from investors. Straight from the Investor’s Mouth was written by Mary Lemmer, after she spent several years working for an early stage venture capital (VC) firm. During her time in VC, she absorbed all sorts of wisdom from investors and entrepreneurs, and viciously took notes to remember all the nuggets of wisdom. After three years she had documented hundreds of one-liners, all of which held some piece of advice for entrepreneurs. An entrepreneur herself, Mary decided to share these pieces of wisdom in Straight from the Investor’s Mouth. Each one liner is followed by a story, exemplifying the one liner, and then the takeaway lesson for entrepreneurs. This book is written for entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, and anyone who wants to better understand how investors think.
