We’re Writing a Book about Starting Up: Share Your Stories Now!

October 7, 2013

I am excited to share that after numerous book ideas over the last eight years, we’ve finally aligned the right timing and deal and Tech Cocktail is writing a book!

We’ve been connecting and celebrating entrepreneurs since 2006, and now it’s time to put their stories into print. The book (due in 2014) will be published by Wiley as a how-to guide for starting up, along with inspiring stories from entrepreneurs around the world. We’ll be announcing the title soon.

We’re going to be working hard the next few months to write the book, but we need your help. We’ll be reaching out weekly with a chance to share your story and be included in the book. So if you have a story, we’d love to hear it! Below are the first set of questions for you, due Sunday night, October 13.

If you have any questions, email Kira Newman from the Tech Cocktail team ([email protected]) as we’ll be working to get this puppy into your hands by next spring.
