"The learning that my team and I had from our discussion of the Evolution of the CEO chart in this book was so important that I keep it on my office wall." Jeff Taylor, CEO and Founding Entrepreneur,

"There are books about starting a company but they tend to deal with the mechanics of business plans and financing. Then there are books about how to be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. This is the first book I've seen that details the role of the CEO of a small but growing company." Brad Feld, Partner, Softbank Venture Capital

"As a seasoned and veteran entrepreneur, my tendency has been to repeat in one version or another the same mistakes. This book provides a reminder of what not to forget in the heat of the battle." John Heron, Heron Gustafson & Co., LLC

"Leading at the Speed of Growth is to entrepreneurial leadership what Geoff Moore's Crossing the Chasm was to high tech marketing." Tom Byers, Professor, Stanford University

Their single greatest contribution is the very idea that an entrepreneur can evolve through predictable stages to become a superb manager, leader and company builder."
