From the Back Cover:

Foreword by Pierre Lamond, General Partner, Sequoia Capital

Venture capital has never been more important to the entrepreneur. But in the past few years, the venture capital process has changed dramatically: first with the dot.com explosion, again with the dot.com collapse, and yet again as the industry has learned its lessons and begun to move forward.

From Concept to Wall Street is the first book on venture capital to reflect these radical transformations and their impact on ventures creation and development. Written by two leading participants in the venture capital and entrepreneurial process, it covers all you need to know to succeed-whatever your industry, whatever your role.

For entrepreneurs, it covers every step from idea to exit: planning, teambuilding, protecting intellectual capital, identifying funding sources, raising money, writing funding agreements, and managing through to IPO or M&A. For venture capitalists, investment bankers, and angels, it offers comprehensive guidance for valuing potential companies and guiding them towards success.

This book provides the depth, the clarity, and above all, the realism that are sorely lacking in many previous books on venture capital. It is, quite simply, essential.

Now, there's a comprehensive guide to the realities of venture capital as they exist right now and going forward. In From Concept to Wall Street, two leading experts in venture-backed entrepreneurship offer a start-to-finish guide to the entire process: starting new companies, identifying and negotiating funding, and managing to-and through-IPOs or M&As. Drawing on their immense personal experience on all sides of the table-and the hard lessons of recent years-Dr. Oren Fuerst and Dr. Uri Geiger offer a complete roadmap for both investors and entrepreneurs.

They begin with detailed guidance on the startup process: evaluating ideas, assembling initial teams, establishing companies, defining strategies, recruiting key employees, registering intellectual property, and more. Next, they review the startup's cash requirements and potential sources of capital, and walk through the process of capital raising, with a close look at valuation, and at the typical contractual arrangements between funders and entrepreneurs. The book includes a full section on venture capital entities and institutions, ranging from VC funds to angels; then presents in-depth coverage of IPOs, M&As, restructurings, and even dissolution of failed enterprises.
