The San Francisco Fallacy: Live Webinar w/ Jonathan Siegel

The San Francisco Fallacy: Live Webinar w/ Jonathan Siegel

Jonathan Siegel, the serial entrepreneur and investor I interviewed about the serial entrepreneur mindset and selling SaaS companies, finally published his book The San Francisco Fallacy: The Ten Fallacies That Make Founders Fail.

I’ve waited almost three years for this book to come out and couldn’t be more excited to announce we’re hosting a private webinar with Jonathan to discuss his approach to entrepreneurship, his new book, and give you a chance to ask him the biggest questions on your mind.


About Jonathan

Jonathan thinks differently than 99% of the entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley and makes a lot more money than them too. He started with nothing and sold multiple companies for tens-of-millions of dollars each. Now, he runs more than five companies which he will grow and sell with his rinse and repeat approach.

I know how Jonathan thinks because I worked with him for the past four years as an investor in Javelin and Lean Startup Machine. Whenever I came to Jonathan with a challenge, his response was to open up spreadsheets and dashboards from his companies and SHOW me the DATA behind what worked for him. The level of detail, discipline, and rigor Jonathan puts into building his busineses is exceptional and eye-opening even for experienced entrepreneurs.


This Book

Jonathan’s advice has made a huge difference for our company over the years, so I’m confident his book will make a difference for your company.

At it’s heart, Jonathan’s new book is about the flaws of the Silicon Valley “model” of building a startup and how it leads to entrepreneurs wasting their most precious years on the wrong things. Jonathan writes from experience and covers the mistakes, failures, and successes he’s made as an entrepreneur and investor.

Jonathan’s book is entertaining, enjoyable, and will suck you in from the beginning. By the end, you’ll be questioning everything you know about building startups.
