What does it take to build startups that fundamentally change the world? And of the startups that attempt to create this change, what separates those who succeed from those who fall short?
In Cultivated Abundance: How We Can Build a Better Future through Transformative Technology Entrepreneurship, serial entrepreneur Mihir Pershad challenges common Silicon Valley wisdom. Drawing on insights from The Good Food Institute, Effective Altruism, and Impossible Foods, Pershad argues that truly transformative startups need to follow a new playbook—one that takes into account the long-term effects of their decisions.
In Cultivated Abundance, you’ll learn how to
- identify a Big Intractable Problem to solve,
- develop a startup to maximize your impact on that problem, and
- increase your startup’s chance of success with a tried and tested methodology.
Pershad notes, “What the most ambitious people do with their lives matters.” Whether you’re looking to tackle climate change, food scarcity, water shortages, or any other massive problem, you can use this book as a tool to create positive change in the world through entrepreneurship.
