An Initiative to Gift Books to Aspiring Founders

Apply to Get a Free Book

"Cover is an initiative by Backstage Capital to help more aspiring entrepreneurs and investors—regardless of income, location, or profile—have access to invaluable startup-related books.

"One of the most impactful parts of my education in startup venture has been through reading books by tech luminaries. Since 2012, I've of course read every blog and watched every video I could get my hands on, but books continue to play a huge role. Early on, I wasn't always able to afford a book I wanted, so oftentimes I'd sit for hours at Barnes & Noble and read them, or save up for weeks to buy a particular title.

"I'll be showcasing my favorite startup books here and giving away copies to randomly selected applicants. Gifting books is another small way to help level the playing field. I hope you'll enjoy my picks—grab a copy if you have the means, or apply to win our giveaway if you need a little help. If you'd like to help me give away books, please get in touch below!"
