Entrepreneur Journeys Book Review: “Iron out the wrinkles on your entrepreneurship canvas”

Posted on Thursday, Sep 3rd 2009

Adarsh Rao delves into “Bootstrapping: Weapon of Mass Reconstruction” on her blog, Ek Sparsh:
“The strength of the book lies in its approachability to the average reader while keeping the veteran interested in nuggets of wisdom in the interviews. The interviews guide you through the struggles 12 venture founders endured and the strategies they employed to build their business. Sramana Mitra’s experience as an entrepreneur, and with venture capital, arms her with a unique perspective, which is evident [from] the questions she poses.

For individuals seeking to be entrepreneurs, Bootstrapping can be viewed as a practical guide.  After you read each interview, note down the key takeaways, add new data points and apply them to your venture.

“The book will not only ask you some straightforward questions, but will also provide you with pointers that can help you iron out the common wrinkles on your entrepreneurship canvas. You will learn a lot by reading about the experiences of entrepreneurs interviewed in this book.”

“Entrepreneur Journeys: Bootstrapping: Weapon of Mass Reconstruction” is now available from Amazon and Smashwords.

Hi Sramana,

Thank you for the trackback. Just a minor correction. Though my name is misleading, I am a girl! So, could you please correct the first line.
