What Experts Say About This Book

Donatas' book is like an IKEA guide for building your next startup. Startup Evolution Curve is a detailed, comprehensive, understandable, and - most important - deeply practical instruction handbook. Every piece of information is based on more than 1,000 different practices, processes, routines, and tips from existing startups. That makes it a must-read when launching your next big thing.

I don’t know any book that sums up better the startup evolution and growth than the ‘Startup Evolution Curve‘ by Dr. Donatas Jonikas: The question isn’t only what you should do; it’s what and when you should do. So, if you are early stage startup founder and already have some innovative ideas, this is one of the most thought-provoking books you should give a try in 2017. Also, if you are looking for in-depth advice about topics such as business feasibility, market experiments, fundraising, product launch, and growth hacking, then this book is again an excellent choice to look for ideas and a different perspective.

I know how challenging it is to build a successful startup (I’ve already developed three). If I could have read this book before creating my first startup, I would have avoided many pitfalls and tons of frustration. My philosophy is to always be coached and this book is full of guidance, not only for the early stage entrepreneurs but also for the already successful ones. None of the books will keep you from failure, but this one will definitely help you make better decisions.

Startup Evolution Curve reveals must-know essentials and strategies for early-stage startup founders. It is impressive how Donatas collected all the essentials and must know's for startups in one, easy-to-read book! I highly recommend Startup Evolution Curve to every startup founder from idea to the growth stage as a Bible of a startup journey.

This book is a great way to rehearse some of the crucial elements that you need to align in order to have a successful business. Think about it like a roadmap that will guide you to the most important stages in your startup: 1. Feasibility Study, 2. Hypotheses and Experiments, 3. Fundraising, 4. Product Launch and the very hot topic of 5. Growth Hacking. Donatas has gathered together the essentials that I would love to have received from my entrepreneurship classes in high school and during my Business University degree.

Startup Evolution Curve is in the same league with The Four Steps to the Epiphany by Steve Blank and The Art of Start by Guy Kawasaki. I would recommend Startup Evolution Curve to startup enthusiasts, first time or serial entrepreneurs, and even to my own kids!

Startup Evolution Curve is a masterpiece of practical, actionable, and easy-to-follow steps to turn an idea into a profitable and scalable business. Donatas has provided would-be entrepreneurs with a blueprint for building a business, along with some excellent templates and tools to help you during the journey. I am very impressed with the depth of the research, the range of examples and case studies, and the honesty and sincerity with which Donatas provides advice and guidance. This is a must-read for anyone thinking of starting a business or growing an existing business.

Dr. Jonikas combines academic research, observations from studying hundreds of startups, and personal experience to craft a solid framework for taking a new venture from idea stage through solid growth. His advice includes both what should be done, and what mistakes to avoid. He also references a variety of online tools that might be missing from other "how to" books, even a year or two old. It's a solid reference book for experienced entrepreneurs and a valuable roadmap for first-time founders. It's organized in a way that allows readers to jump into the sections of particular interest, so it isn't necessary to start at the beginning. It is well worth the read!

Startup Evolution Curve is one the greatest books I have read, one that not only wisely and realistically touches some of the most intricate pain-points of startups, but also offers an equally wise, simplified, and detailed solution. A good thing about this book is that it opens your mind to different possibilities and perspectives. Therefore, I would love to refer it to every startup, aspirant, businessman, and student I know.

Startup Evolution Curve perfectly embodies all that is essential to becoming the definitive business manual: essential analysis; lean method; hands-on approach. Using an iterative and closed-loop process,  with tons of visual and practical takeaways, it is highly recommended for startup practitioners. And, as a seasoned business, we will want to keep it on our working desk - because it just goes straight to the point.

Alberto Ratti

It's a practical combination and synthesis of old and new practices in terms of startup and business. Startup founders can surely find a complete journey in order to manage a startup, from creating business models based on ideas to developing funding approaches and metrics for new businesses.
