Why should people read it? Who is the book for?

500,000 new companies launch every month in the U.S. alone. Yet only 56 percent of startups will make it to year five. In 2020, there was an increase of 24 percent of new startups. Ready, Launch, Brand was written to increase the odds of startup success. The book addresses the key reasons that startups fail – no market need and having the wrong team – and provides practical answers. Readers will get advice from founders who have been there and exercises such as how to uncover your company’s unique value proposition.
