Why read The Finishers?

Nix Nolledo
Chairman and CEO of Xurpas

“If you’re a tech entrepreneur, there’s no denying a simple fact: You want to generate a financial return on all the time and energy you spent building your software or hardware innovation. And that’s why I appreciate the The Finishers. By collecting stories of our local exits, it’ll be easier for founders to understand what it takes to succeed in a Philippine setting. I’d recommend this book to all local technology founders.”

Why read The Finishers?

Ezra Ferraz wrote The Finishers after encountering a group of local entrepreneurship students who could not name a single successful Philippine founder. He documented the stories found in the book to give them local heroes.

Ezra graduated from UC Berkeley and earned a Master in Professional Writing from the University of Southern California. The Finishers is his first book – his second will be published world-wide in late 2018 or early 2019 by Apress.
