FG Press and Uncommon Stock

Our friends at Foundry Group announced Foundry Group Press last week, an equitable publishing service that treats authors like partners, not service providers. With authors billed as top priority, FG Press promises:

…to be at the forefront of this change, experimenting constantly in order to build a strong community around long-form written content in the domain of entrepreneurship. You’ll see non-fiction, fiction, self-help, and science fiction from us. And you’ll see a wide range of known and unknown writers.

Techstars has done a site license for all founders for one of the first titles by FG Press, Uncommon Stock, which is released to the public today today. The book is penned by Eliot Peper, a writer and consultant who works with entrepreneurs as a drop-in operator and adviser. As a former founder and early-stage employee at multiple startups, Eliot is well positioned to tell the story of two young founders starting a tech company.

We’re super excited about FG Press and expect it to change the dynamic between authors and readers, bringing the two parties closer together. A site license for Uncommon Stock for our founders is an easy give.

If you’re not a Techstars founder, you can buy the book on Amazon here for just $4.99. If you are, we will be in touch!
