Summary

High Growth Handbook is the playbook for growing your startup into a global brand.

"If you want the chance to turn your startup into the next Google or Twitter, then listen to this trenchant guide from someone who played key roles in the growth of these companies." (Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and New York Times number one best-selling author)

Global technology executive, serial entrepreneur, and angel investor Elad Gil has worked with high-growth, tech companies like Airbnb, Twitter, Google, Stripe, and Square as they've grown from small companies to global enterprises.

Across all of these breakout companies, a set of common patterns has evolved into a repeatable playbook that Gil has now codified in High Growth Handbook. In this definitive guide, Gil covers key topics, including:

  • The role of the CEO
  • Managing a board 
  • Recruiting and managing an executive team 
  • Mergers and acquisitions 
  • Initial public offerings 
  • Late-stage funding 

Interspersed with and informed by 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.

Must read for every entrepreneur!

Can’t begin to explain the level of detail this book covers. Every entrepreneur should listen to this book if you want to grow a successful company. This book is as vital as The Lean Start up and should be on a top 5 must read list!

Good book on high growth businesses

Enjoy listening to this book did not complete because some of the elements that relate to M&A as well as raising money don't quite relate to me but the rest is very good

Narrators voice is boring but content is great

I don’t know why they don’t use a bot to narrate, this guy was terrible. But if you can get past that and the fact the chapters don’t match the book it’s a great listen for anyone scaling. Even if you’re never going to go from 10-10000 (I think we’d struggle to fit in another 9800 in the village) there are some great tips for post 50 employees with PR, HR and Product Development. Also some great tips for Aquisitions, more from the point of view of being acquired by a big fish if you’re looking for an exit! Well worth a listen.
