In it, he covers his core philosophy on leadership — with many great stories. Chambers boils down his approach to four key areas: anticipate and get ahead of market transitions, find ways to innovate at scale, build a culture that is focused on the needs of the customer and develop a flexible network infrastructure. The JC2 Ventures portfolio consists of 12 companies. Chambers told Yahoo Finance he is a month or so away from revealing his next bet. Silicon Valley no longer has a monopoly on startups, he said, as countries like France and India have explicitly developed tech programs to encourage investment.
Maybe they are pondering over this question too. Anyways good review man.
Like i always say Rastu is the man. No doubt, MBA does widen our horizons and is helpful in understanding basics of any business, but it is not the necessary condition to become entrepreneur.
Your review highlights this point very well.
BTW, you can also post your review on the official forum of the book at http: Not read the book till now but Im sure the book must be good. I feel, the most common thing among all such successful entrepreneurs is that they started with some routine kind of job and then they decided to take a plunge in their interest. And now they are successful. Of course MBA in India has become the most sought after career!! But today B-Schools are churning out only managers.
All we and they care about is how much average salary package of college is. Enterprenuership seems to have lost in recent times. Transition of Thoughts Weaving thoughts into words.

MBA does not give u any additional knowledge it is just an experience infact it is more sense I always wondered why the IIM passouts are not the stalwarts the industry. Varun Jindal.
Well-written Aseem! Way to go: The review sounds really good: Nice review,will definitely give it a read! People would say we had one of the strongest cultures not just in Silicon Valley, but also in the country. We outlined the culture of giving back, innovation, etc. You would move heaven and earth to help them.
When a customer had a problem, we put customers first. We walked the talk of that. I listened to every critical account in the world every night. We paid our management on customer satisfaction, so we matched culture to our whole fundamental strategy.
I think people underestimate that. Culture is usually what they pick up the slowest. The fun thing is when they get it and see the results with their employees or customers. The most successful venture capitalists in the world, in terms of their funds returning, often have more failures than the average venture capital because they take more risk.
But the one or two homeruns out of that portfolio carry the whole investment. I think the disruption is actually going to accelerate. My worry in the U. If you miss one, then get up and go do it again. My problem is the number of startups in the U. If you watch the number of IPOs which are the future indication of job creation in this country, during the s it was to a year and reached a peak of My worry is not the failure rate.
You tell a fantastic story about a fishing trip that you took with your dad on the Elk River in West Virginia. Can you relay that story?
Chambers: That river has very rapid run offs in certain areas that are dangerous to swimmers. I was six years old, fishing with my dad. He was fishing about yards above me. I got too close to the edge and fell in. I got swept away immediately, and my dad yelled at me to hold on to the fishing pole.
I can see him to this day, running through the water, down the side with water going everywhere. Then he sat down, as my dad has often done with me, and taught me a lesson in life.
And if you panic. What you have to do is deal with the world the way it is — to realize that you have to go down with the current, look for your chance to get out of the water, and then learn how to get out.
Then he took us up to where we started fishing, and he let me fish. Knowledge Wharton: You have said that failure is not a bad thing.
