Whether it’s knowing how to scale a business and lead a venture team to transform a languishing startup - or knowing the smart way to raise capital and how to stay on top of your so-called VC partners - or knowing when and to whom to sell and getting your price - or knowing what irreversible mistakes to avoid in living the dream in Silicon Valley, Tim tells it straight and unscripted.
