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. Here are two items courtesy of the US Patent and Trademark Office: A guide to assessing your firms’s “IP Awareness“, and an official IP Report, released this last March. We’ve also found the Space Angels Network website to contain immensely valuable information regarding the NewSpace Industry.
Another Kawasaki classic: What to say and NOT to say to Investors. Also, Overdrive: The official blog of the The Entrepreneur’s Organization, has tons of great posts on every possible topic related to entrepreneurship. 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.
