A few months ago I finished The Hard Thing About Hard Things - Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers, by Ben Horowitz. It’s a good read from the point of view of a founder who went through the CEO transformation to becoming more of a board member/investor now. It tackles topics in startups such as culture, management, hiring, promotions fund raising but most of all, how to get out of binds. This was a good read while not necessarily applicable to my situation it’s a good overview of what being part of the startup machine looks like, in my book that’s 3/5 ⭐️ material. It gives a bit of insight into Horowitz’ experiences and gives context to his investment philosophies.
