Facebook. Google. Apple. They are the household names of the 21st century. Each seemed to have come from nowhere to change our lives. They didn’t come from nowhere. These giants and other innovative companies large and small have arisen from a process of entrepreneurship, a unity of leadership, creativity, strategy, investment and hard work.

Brad Feld understands that entrepreneurial process. He lives it and guides others through it with his counsel and financing. As Brad writes, startups in the tech era are the spiritual successors to rock bands during the British Invasion. Back then, everyone wanted to be the next Beatles (or perhaps The Who, as they receive a shout-out on Brad’s blog). Today, dreamers still huddle and sweat in garages, following the lead of Jobs, Page and Zuckerberg in place of John, Paul, George and Ringo. Brad is at the center of this evolved vibe: a mashup of the Fab Four’s watchmen Brian Epstein and George Martin. He acts as manager, banker, producer, orchestrator and motivator. His combination of mentoring, energy and relevance drew me to his blog.

In deriving Burning Entrepreneur from Brad’s blog writings, I sought his core philosophy for shaping leaders who in turn shape startups. He focuses on people, those who create companies and those who find value in the companies. The book includes information about financing, administrative procedures, and product development. But mainly, it contains flesh and blood. And fire.

I hope readers will enjoy and absorb Brad Feld’s wisdom and passion. He’s the guru-in-the-wings who hasn’t forgotten how to shred a solo. He wants to get you out of the garage and make you a star. He wants you to burn!
