Acclaim for Leading at the Speed of Growth, Your Journey from Entrepreneur to CEO

"The learning that my team and I had from our discussion of the ′Evolution of the CEO′ chart in this book was so important that I keep it on my office wall." –Jeff Taylor, CEO and Founding Entrepreneur, Monster.com

"There are books about starting a company but they tend to deal with the mechanics of business plans and financing. Then there are books about ′how to be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company.′ This is the first book I′ve seen that details the role of the CEO of a small but growing company." –Brad Feld, Partner, Softbank Venture Capital

"As a seasoned and veteran entrepreneur, my tendency has been to repeat in one version or another the same mistakes. This book provides a reminder of what not to forget in the heat of the battle." –John Heron, Heron Gustafson & Co., LLC

"Leading at the Speed of Growth is to entrepreneurial leadership what Geoff Moore′s Crossing the Chasm was to high tech marketing." –Tom Byers, Professor, Stanford University

"Matthews and Catlin do the entrepreneurial process a great service with this book. Their single greatest contribution is the very idea that an entrepreneur can evolve through predictable stages to become a superb manager, leader and company builder." –Jim Collins, coauthor of Built to Last Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation

Inspired by his passion to provide opportunity for other entrepreneurs, Ewing Marion Kauffman launched the Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership in 1992.
