    An easy and insightful read I have been in entrepreneurial world close to a decade both internationally and in the US. The literature and the experiences have been always Silicon Valley biased. Thus, reading this book and hearing the author’s story were worthwhile to confirm my points of view. Highly recommend to first time entrepreneurs.

    I recently came across Mike Belsito, because we're authors in a similar space. Note I spoke with three other authors in this space who are coming out with books this year (like I am) and many gave me the cold shoulder... I won't name names - but you won't see their books on my recommended list like Mike's is.

I read Mike''s book Startup Seed Funding for the Rest of Us: How to Raise Million for Your Startup - Even Outside of Silicon Valley in a single sitting and was nodding my head and saying "exactly" over and over again. The things Mike talks about in his book feels like a repeat of every entrepreneur coffee I've ever had... how should I think about funding my business, what are investors looking for, but what if I'm not in the 'valley'. Mike nails most of these on the head! These are fundamental problems that every entrepreneur, especially first time entrepreneurs face... When should you raise capital? before or after traction? How should you raise capital? What does a business look like that raises capital? What is a value-add investor anyway? Mike covers all of these and many more in his book plus the website with free resources.

    Excellent book that really should be required reading for all those thinking of starting a business. Mike Belsito is authentic and shares his hard won knowledge of the startup process. I've been looking for a book on seed funding for months, and have read multiple that didn't fit the bill, until I found this one. This book answers important questions like, should you take investments from friends and family? how much should you raise? how to find investors? what are the best investors for you?

    Simple, clear, concise. A solid narrative on startup outside The Valley, with practical hands-on advice on navigating the seed funding game. Recommended for the business founder just getting their startup off the ground.

    Great book! As the author says "reading this book won't necessarily make the process of raising $1 million for your startup ventura a walk in the park" but it's good to understand some things about founding outside the big startup hubs.
