This one is quite a lengthy video (could be “old” too) but is rich of interesting insights about the Web 2.0 industry. In this video, Michael Arrington (for those who don’t know, he’s the TechCrunch guy) interviewed 13 well-known startup CEOs including one from JotSpot, Browster (dead), ye olde Technorati, RapLeaf, Rojo, Socializr, Bolt, Piczo, VideoEgg, Eurekster and Simply Hired.
Topics range from the basic fundamentals of Web 2.0 to the deep inner workings of startup companies, including the limitations, challenges and tips of managing a serious Web 2.0 startup company. So if you have 25 minutes to kill, sit back, relax, and enjoy this video
Hope you learnt something interesting & useful today.Tags: startup company web 2.0 Web 2.0 entrepreneur web 2.0 video

While I was browsing through my collection of downloaded e-books earlier today, I came across one titled “How to Build A Bulletproof Startup” which I found on Business 2.0 magazine somewhere last year.
What’s really interesting about this e-book is the use of illustrative pictures with easily understandable English to explain the processes of how Startups are found and built. It throws you the big picture straight into your face without digressing so much. The e-book lists down 16-steps guide in chronological order of how you can create your own startup from as early as establishing your company to developing your idea to funding strategies to launching your app to marketing your product.
While I noticed that most of the financial requirements stated in the e-book seems to be exagerrated A LOT (I mean hey… $500K needed to build a prototype and $1 million to build the beta app?? Come on….), but they did raised some major important points that needs to be considered for establishing a professional startup such as staffing considerations and how your end-product might evolve and change from your initial idea.
So go ahead, download the e-book and read it. Just remember to turn a blind eye for any financial figures found in it, because you want to create a bulletproof startup, not shooting a bullet through your startup.Tags: business plan entrepreneurship startup web 2.0
