According to the Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurial Activity, more than 565,000 new businesses were created in 2010 in the United States alone—each one of them hoping to strike gold. The Startup Playbook will help them succeed. Going insider to insider with unprecedented access, New York Times bestselling author and Clickable CEO, David Kidder, shares the hard-hitting experiences of some of the world’s most influential entrepreneurs and CEOs, revealing their most closely held advice. Face-to-face interviews with 40 founders give readers key insights into what it took to build PayPal, LinkedIn, AOL, TED, Flickr, and many others into household names. Special sections include topics ranging from how to select the right idea to pursue to finding funding and overcoming inevitable obstacles. In an economy demanding change, The Startup Playbook is the go-to for entrepreneurs big and small.

    The first rule is to pay attention to the intuitive “itches” that accompany certain ideas. But VC-blogger Mark Suster pointed out a new twist on this formula: “scratch your own itch” makes sense, but it’s also led to the marketplace being overcrowded with bar and music apps. The end-goal shouldn’t be to scratch a personal itch that leads you to launch another bar app. The goal has to be to do something that you can imagine yourself being passionate about for at least six years.
