About this event

Read the book then meet the author! An exclusive conversation with Suneel Gupta, Author of #1 new release on Amazon, Backable: The Surprising Truth Behind what Makes People Take a Chance on You. Thanks to the folks at Tooploox, you can receive your free book by filling out this form and get your copy in the mail.

Suneel Gupta teaches Innovation at Harvard University and is the author of Backable. Backable hit the #1 new release on Amazon overall, and also for Workplace Behavior. Suneel’s ideas have been backed by firms like Greylock and Google Ventures – and he served as an Entrepreneur in Residence inside Kleiner, Perkins Caufield & Byers. He has personally backed startups including Impossible Foods, AirBnB, 23&Me, Calm, and SpaceX.

However, Suneel started out just like you and me, fumbling through pitches and proposals, unsure of how to prove that he was worth a chance. So how exactly did he learn how to hack it? Follow his guidelines to learn how to invigorate yourself and demonstrate your worthy investment by:

1. Convincing yourself that you’re backable

2. Casting a central character

3. Earned secret- going beyond what is googleable

4. How to be a good storyteller

5. Build a supportive and backable circle
