“A compelling memoir revealing the heart and mind of a leading venture capitalist who shaped the industry. Chuck Newhall shares unflinching stories – both personal and professional – that shed light on how venture capitalists over the past half century have contributed to America’s ascendance as an entrepreneurial power.”

Dare Disturb the Universe tells stories of the good, the bad, and the ugly of creating companies and explains how the venture capital industry created 80% of the American Economy and how the industry faces the chance of significant legislation which could severely damage it.
