Silicon Valley can be a wild ride for an entrepreneur, especially if you're a woman, a minority (or both ). But not being a white dude dropout from Stanford shouldn't stand between you and startup success-there's a path forward for everyone, including you. In Mechanical Bull, Silicon Valley veteran Cheryl Contee takes readers through her entrepreneurial journey with humor and candor, sharing practical insights from her experience of launching three startups and receiving more than $2 million in venture capital investment, despite being a nontraditional founder. Through Cheryl's open, honest account of the gender and race bias in a system set up to serve the aforementioned (i.e., the privileged few), you'll learn how to steer through that system and flourish along the way.So saddle up for a practical guide to launching a successful startup and riding trends like a boss-without ever getting thrown off your game.
