Advance praise for Built for Growth:
Alex Gorsky, Chairman and CEO, Johnson & Johnson-
"In order to achieve long-term growth, large corporations must foster the entrepreneurial spirit. Built for Growth provides a practical framework on how corporate leaders can foster, deploy, and support entrepreneurs inside their companies to unleash innovation and growth."
Steve Blank, inspiration for the Lean Startup movement; coauthor, The Startup Owner's Manual-
"Product-market fit is central to the Lean Startup movement. In this essential book, Kuenne and Danner focus on the fit between the founder's personality and the teams, customers, and investors needed to build for growth. A must-read!"
Alan Blinder, former Vice Chairman, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve; former member, Council of Economic Advisers-
"The ancient Greek philosophers advised us to `know thyself.' Kuenne and Danner agree, and they argue that the personality of the founder is one of the key elements in the growth of a new business. To find out what kind of actual or potential entrepreneur you are, read this fascinating book."
Paul Maeder, cofounder, Highland Capital Partners; former Chairman, National Venture Capital Association-
"Built for Growth provides investors and founders alike with a pragmatic guide on how best to select and work with one another."
