Well known technology executive and angel investor Elad Gil has worked with high growth tech companies like Airbnb, Twitter, Google, Instacart, Coinbase, Stripe, and Square as they've grown from small companies into global brands. Across all of these break-out companies, a set of common patterns has evolved into a repeatable playbook that Gil has codified in High Growth Handbook. Covering key topics including the role of the CEO, managing your board, recruiting and managing an executive team, M&A, IPOs and late stage funding rounds, and interspersed with over a dozen interviews with some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley including Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Marc Andreessen (Andreessen Horowitz), and Aaron Levie (Box), High Growth Handbook presents crystal clear guidance for navigating the most complex challenges that confront leaders and operators in high-growth startups. In what Reid Hoffman, cofounder of LinkedIn and co-author of the #1 NYT bestsellers The Alliance and The Startup of You calls "a trenchant guide," High Growth Handbook is the playbook for turning a startup into a unicorn.… (more)

Great book about the "good problem to have" of a startup -- after you've reached product/market fit, the scaling into an enduring organization.

The book included a lot of interviews with experienced Silicon Valley executives and venture capitalists. Some of the interviews were pretty horrible, most were good, a few were great. I did like that Elad used people he thought better able than himself to illustrate certain points.

The book could use better editing in a lot of places, as it seemed like certain things were presented out of order, and some areas were overemphasized and others lacked sufficient detail. Nothing in the book would be the definitive answer for an entrepreneur at this growth stage, but pointers to other resources, and there are a lot of footnotes and references.

Overall, it's probably the best overview of the growth stage of companies that I've seen.

An extraordinary book, incredibly helpful to every founder because it is so detailed and specific. The content here is very difficult to get hold of in other ways because far fewer companies go through the scale-up phase than the start-up phase (most due along the way). And the ones that do make it never talk about the problems in public - they have PR people by then hiding all mistakes. So this is a real service to the community and it benefits from Elad’s own rich experience and network. The very best investors, executives and founders are clearly trusting enough of him to speak honestly and actionably. I highly recommend this book. ( )
