I'm not famous. I'm certain of that. I'm not an unsung hero, with some secret significance that everyone needs but nobody knows. I haven't wrestled an alligator and lived to tell the tale, nor have I climbed Everest, ran for president, killed a man, or been trapped in a loveless marriage. All I've done is written a journal of thoughts. So, noteworthy? Not me. I have the stories that are short as nice lawns and different flavors like jellybeans. Stories that plunge through each other like waves folding and crashing and pulling back again. I have them all strung out in a line like wet laundry hung to dry. The nice lawns and jellybeans and waves and laundry stories, my stories, who reads them? Nobody, really, not even me. I write them and keep them and never see them again. Someone will walk by my stories in the bookstore and see my name and wonder who I am. And they won't find me online and they won't find me anywhere but my stories. My stories are all right here. My life and my laundry line are here. My autobiography of no one important. Venture Home is much more than a book about childhood or high school. It is the bittersweet story of three years, both moving and remarkable. In a unique blend of poetry and storytelling, innocence and learning, imagination and reality, S. E. Lauer tests the unbreakable line between having perfection and wanting it.

Get the inside scoop on what venture capitalists want to see in your startup as you hit the fundraising trail. This is the highly anticipated third edition of the best-selling book which has become the definitive resource for understanding venture capital fundraising. Whether you are an entrepreneur, lawyer, student or just have an interest in the venture capital ecosystem, Venture Deals is for you. The book dives deeply into how deals are constructed, why certain terms matter (and others don’t), and more importantly, what motivates venture capitalists to propose certain outcomes. You’ll see the process of negotiating from the eyes of two seasoned venture capitalists who have over 40 years of investing experience as VCs, LPs, angels, and founders. They will teach you how to develop a fundraising strategy that will be a win for all parties involved. This book is designed to bring transparency to the venture capital funding process and includes such topics as: How to raise money; What terms matter and which ones don’t; How to negotiate a fair deal for everyone; What makes venture capitalists tick, including how they are compensated and motivated; How companies are valued by venture capitalists; How all current structures of funding work, including convertible debt, crowdfunding, pre-sales and other non-traditional methods; How these particular issues change through different stages of financing (seed, early, mid and late); and How to avoid business and legal pitfalls that many entrepreneurs make. And as in the previous editions, this book isn’t just a one-sided opinion from venture capitalists, but also has helpful commentary throughout from a veteran CEO who has raised many rounds of financing from many different investors. If you are ready to learn all the secrets and ins and outs of fundraising, Venture Deals is an essential read.
