Creative Capital a “Must read”: New Review

July 1, 2009

I wanted to share this new customer review with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Venture Capital Insights: A Must Read, June 29, 2009
By Jennifer Jones (Woodside California)

Spencer Ante’s book Creative Capital is one of the most insightful books I have ever read. Having spent the last 20 years working in venture capital as a marketer with firms including Mayfield Fund (mentioned in Ante’s book), Allegis Capital, Canaan Partners, and Versant Ventures, I was enthralled by the detail and story-telling of Spencer Ante. His ability to put a legacy figure as Georges Doriot into perspective and “connect the dots” in an industry that is a mystery to many is impressive. It made me wish i had the opportunity to experience Doriot personally. If I were to recommend to anyone what books they should read to understand venture capital, Ante’s is such a book.
