Double Double: How to Double Your Revenue and Profit in 3 Years or Less
Double Double: How to Double Your Revenue and Profit in 3 Years or Less

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for any busy entrepreneur, 30 Aug. 2011
I first came across Cameron's amazing TED talk "Let's raise kids to be entrepreneurs" and something just clicked. Here was a highly successful fellow entrepreneur who not only told it like it is, but wanted to make such a huge contribution to all us up and coming entrepreneurial rookies. Double double continues along the same lines. Not just real and extremely valuable tips and insights from someone who's been there, done that and got the T shirt - but truly valuable lessons in what it actually feels like on the journey. As someone who's currently building an early-stage biotech the importance of having that real vision, building a great team and being laser focused speak volumes. But it's Cameron's own unique ability to share the emotional experiences and more importantly how to handle the "rollercoaster" ride, which makes this book an absolute MUST READ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on VC funding out there, 24 Oct. 2009
People will give you a lot of advice if you are about to seek Venture Capital financing - friends, fellow entrepreneurs and business school faculty. But if you are serious about raising finance to get your entrepreneurial venture off the ground, you must read this book first.

Not only is it exceptionally well written, but with supporting case studies it puts across all the terminology and financial wizardry in a way which you can easiy apply to your own situation. Structuring your growth path, how to make your business an appealing investor proposition, and how not to fall foul of the detailed terms - as the title suggests this is the VC fundraising book for the Serious Entrepreneur.
