What this Newsletter about?

Hi - I’m Mike Wilner, the writer of this weekly newsletter. Getting Shots Up includes essays, interviews, and more about building entrepreneurial careers. This isn’t startup advice – it’s a zoomed out view of how entrepreneurial people can think about constructing a career that results in a lot of high quality shots on goal. I’m a 2013 Venture for America fellow, a former startup founder, the co-author of a book on seed fundraising, and am on the Early Stage Startup team at AWS. My goal is to help entrepreneurs (including myself) figure out how do build long, successful entrepreneurial careers that work for them, and this newsletter is going to explore that big question.
