52% You save
Start Small, Stay Small: A Developer's Guide to Launching a Startup is a step-by-step guide to launching a self-funded startup, written by successful entrepreneur, Rob Walling. If you're a desktop, mobile or web developer, this book is your blueprint to getting your startup off the ground with no outside investment.
With 17 five-star Amazon reviews and over 3500 copies sold (self-published), Start Small intentionally avoids topics restricted to venture-backed startups such as: honing your investment pitch, securing funding, and figuring out how to use the piles of cash investors keep placing in your lap. The eBook assumes that:
- You don't have $6M of investor funds sitting in your bank account
- You're not going to relocate to the handful of startup hubs in the world
- You're not going to work 70 hour weeks for low pay with the hope of someday making millions from stock options
While there's nothing wrong with pursuing venture funding and attempting to grow fast like Amazon, Google, Twitter, and Facebook, it just so happens that most people are not in a position to do this.
Start Small is written in a hands-on fashion, with 20% theory and 80% practical, applicable steps to keep you moving forward on your startup. There's a reason Randall Degges, Amazon reviewer, called this book "Possibly the Best Book on Developer Startups Ever Written."
From the author:
I'm a serial entrepreneur with more than a dozen products under my belt. A few of my successful applications include a popular SEO keyword tool, the leading ASP.NET invoicing software on the market and an application for building wedding websites. I've been fortunate to be mentioned in Investor's Business Daily, the D.C. Examiner and Entrepreneur.com, and many others. I blog to 16,000 web entrepreneurs each month and co-host a highly rated podcast called Startups for the Rest of Us.
