All Money Is Not Created Equal By David Spreng AudioBook summary
Too often, thanks to multiple rounds of equity investment, company founders wind up with only a small fraction of the businesses they start. But this situation isn’t inevitable. The intelligent use of a variety of financing options—including debt financing—can help to maintain, or even grow, a founder’s stake.
In All Money Is Not Created Equal, renowned Silicon Valley veteran David Spreng delivers an expert guide for entrepreneurs and founders seeking to maintain as much ownership stake as possible in the companies they create as they move through the various stages of the financing process. The book draws on the author’s decades of experience as a venture capitalist, venture debt lender, and CEO of a publicly traded company in Silicon Valley, as well as interviews with entrepreneurs, board members, investors, and bankers.
Listeners will also find: a well-rounded and insightful perspective on the financing process informed by industry veterans; an informal and accessible exploration of a complex topic that remains critical to the success of entrepreneurs and founders; and discussions of alternatives to equity financing, including debt financing, in the growth phase of startups.
