This is a work in progress, but we thought we could help by giving you a few items to get yourself started and energized to participate in this year’s BPC.
The first item comes from one of this country’s best known business mentors: Guy Kawasaki.
He has offered the world – for free – his recommended templates for business plans, financials, and pitch slides. Just click this link.
Another Kawasaki classic: What to say and NOT to say to Investors
And here is one post in particular dedicated to startups that we thought was valuable to the BPC applicants.
Another great mentor for small businesses and startups is Barry Moltz.
Here’s a great post from Startup Genome (originally posted in Techcrunch) analyzing the “hot spots” of tech-preneur activity.
