About The Book

Decoding Silicon Valley: The Insider’s Guide

By Michelle E. Messina & Jonathan C. Baer

Silicon Valley is not the birthplace of all tech-based startups, nor the source of all venture capital, but over the past fifty years, the Valley’s entrepreneurs have refined the art of company-building into a science. A certain mystique has developed about Silicon Valley, one that gets distorted and magnified the farther away from the Valley you are. The world believes that Silicon Valley is the place to start and build a technology company into a global leader. But how does it actually work?

Decoding Silicon Valley: The Insider’s Guide is designed to help you better understand and appreciate Silicon Valley—including the more subtle aspects of the Valley that are, in fact, hidden in plain sight. You will learn about Silicon Valley best practices, and about the Valley’s unique vantage point for evaluating startups. We help you understand the rules that can and should be broken, and the value of experimenting and iterating until you either find success, or run out of time and money, and fail.
This book includes interviews with serial and first-time entrepreneurs, leading venture capitalists, and many others who are part of the Valley ecosystem. Notable interviewees include Ann Winblad of Hummer Winblad, Joe Kennedy of Pandora, and Phil Libin of Evernote. The interviews provide colorful stories, surprising anecdotes, and telling insights about what really happens in Silicon Valley.
