Surviving a Startup with Steven Hoffman
He has a long history with startups. His career took off with three venture-funded startups in Silicon Valley as well as two bootstrap startups. He proclaims, "he's been in the trenches" and knows first-hand all the hardships and triumphs that entrepreneurs face.
After his third venture-funded startup, when he decided to take a break, his friends began to approach him for help with their own startups, asking questions on how to raise money, how to pitch investors, how to scale a company, and beyond. He soon gained the nickname "Captain Hoff" and became a go-to for startup information in Silicon Valley.
Steve Hoffman (Captain Hoff) is the CEO of Founders Space, one of the world’s leading startup accelerators, with over 50 partners in 22 countries. Founders Space was ranked the #1 incubator for overseas startups by Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazines.
Hoffman is also a venture investor, founder of three venture-backed and two bootstrapped startups, and author of several award-winning books. These include “Make Elephants Fly” (published by Hachette), “Surviving a Startup” (published by HarperCollins), and “The Five Forces” (published by BenBella).
