Randall Stross will appear at the South by Bookstore to sign copies of “The Launch Pad: Inside Y Combinator, Silicon Valley's Most Exclusive School for Startups” following his Book Reading session.
Randall Stross followed the Summer 2011 batch of startups funded by Y Combinator, the seed fund based in Mountain View, CA, and the resulting book was THE LAUNCH PAD: Inside Y Combinator, Silicon Valley's Most Exclusive School for Startups, published last fall.
Stross writes the "Digital Domain" column for the New York Times and is a professor of business at San Jose State University. The Launch Pad was preceded by earlier books on venture capital, Google, Microsoft, and Steve Jobs during the NeXT years.
Stross has a B.A. from Macalester College in St.Paul, Minnesota, and a Ph.D. in history from Stanford.
