About the author

James Silver’s career as a journalist began at the BBC, where he was a producer, reporter and documentary-maker at BBC Radio 4 and 5 Live. He went on to write over 400 feature articles and interviews – mostly covering media, technology and politics – for, among others, the Guardian, WIRED magazine, the Observer, Total Politics, the Independent, the Evening Standard and BBC News Online. Upscale is his first book.

By founders for founders, and those toying with starting a business, Upscale – based on the Tech Nation programme of the same name – covers the most pressing, practical and often painful issues founders face: from coping with stress to getting shot of a bad hire, to handling a tricky board member and opening a first overseas office.
