Randall Stross takes us behind the scenes and inside the heads of the gutsy entrepreneurs who financed the hottest businesses on the Web. This is an inside account of the venture capitalists at work, detailing the drama, risk-taking and excitement which characterized the glory days of a great business adventure. For two years, Randall Stross gained unprecedented access to the venture capitalists at Benchmark. He brings to life their gutsy deals, testosterone-pumped conversations and the round-the-clock meetings that launched the eBoys and their clients into the stratosphere of mega-wealth.show more
