Mysterious investors, critical customers and a dangerous drug cartel…oh my. Is this what your life as an entrepreneur is like?

We certainly hope not…

But as entrepreneurs in the trenches of building a business, we’ve certainly had plenty of “you can’t write this sh*t” moments of our own. In his book, Uncommon Stock Version 1.0, Eliot Peper brings those moments to life.

That’s why we’re partnering with Peper, the author of the startup thriller (yes, that’s a thing!) Brad Feld described as:

“Insanely cool… a gripping roller coaster ride through the world of tech entrepreneurship. Tears you out of your seat and into a brand new genre, the startup thriller. Watch out, it will hijack your free time through to the last word. More, please?”

Here’s a little more about the book:

Mara Winkel is rock climbing, mountain biking, and ‘studying’ her way through school at the University of Colorado, Boulder. But when her best friend James asks her to partner with him to start a disruptive new software company she discovers that the world of technology startups is fraught with intrigue, adrenaline, soaring successes, and scorching failures. It turns out this is especially true when your technology threatens entrenched drug cartels. Mara has to juggle mysterious investors, opaque partners, critical customers, and a team that is as brilliant as it is dysfunctional until only one question remains: win or die.
