The book

Have you ever imagined taking a risk and starting your own business?

Neither had casino marketing consultant Kara Holm, but when her partner casually suggested an idea that seemed of-the-moment to solve a business problem her clients were facing, she decided to explore the opportunity.

Kara quickly found herself immersed in an unfamiliar ecosystem consumed by the demands of the new business. Upstarts: Founders, Failure, and the Startup Paradox is an instructive memoir of what not to do, that offers a rare glimpse into the world of startups outside of the Silicon Valley bubble.
