The First Venture Capitalist. Udayan Gupta

The First Venture Capitalist. Udayan Gupta. 2004. ISBN 1896209939.
The life of Georges Doriot. Leadership, Capital, and Business
“The General” was an unique individual who set an unbelievable standard
as he created the
US, Cdn and European VC markets that we know today. He refused to have
a biography
created while he was alive, so this is a collection of articles and
memories that were amassed after his
death. He drove the Harvard business school curriculum the early days,
organized the US Quartermasters Corp
for WWII and started key VC organizations. He harks from a much more
altruistic era. If you can find it
it is an enlightening read.
