“The U.S. entrepreneurial ecosystem has made a significant positive impact on our economy, society, and innovation, by creating jobs, wealth, and life changing products and services. In his book, Chuck Newhall highlights the importance of patient, resilient, and long-term investors; strong, values-driven venture firms; and the starring role entrepreneurs play on the journey to success. The successes of venture-backed startups over the past fifty years—thanks in part to Chuck Newhall, his peers, and NEA—have helped make the U.S. venture industry the envy of the world.”
