How to Choose an Incubator and the Ideal Entrepreneur

Confused about incubators, accelerators, and all the in-between types of places geared for startups out there? Well, maybe this video won’t clear that up but it will give you some good laughs.

At the recent panel discussion “Incubator Summit: How to Choose the Right Incubator for your Startup“, some great entrepreneurs discussed what characterizes incubators, co-working locations, accelerator, and also talked about what makes for great entrepreneurs.

Participated Adeo Ressi (Founder Institute), Dave McClure (500 Startups), Jonathan Abrams (Founders Den),  Kindra Tatarsky (Astia), and Cameron Teitelman (StartX). A great exchange of ideas (especially since the panelists didn’t necessarily agree with each other) and good content worth checking out.

StartupDigest and Founder Institute Free Startup Course

The StartupDigest and the Founder Institute have teamed up to offer via Udemy a series of lectures aimed at helping startup founders with the initial steps in building a technology company.

“Startup and Go” is online and available at Udemy’s website (http://www.udemy.com/startup-and-go/). Although by ‘invitation only’ there are some codes you can use to gain free access to the course. The first 100 people to use the password “startupdigest” will have full access to the online talks, per a recent email sent to members of The Funded website. I didn’t know this, but it seems another code was flowing around from an earlier post by ReadWriteWeb for the first 1,000 users, so you can try that one as well: “readwriteweb”.

The talks are a great way to gain additional insights from some experienced entrepreneurs, and Adeo’s always a truly motivational guy! Worth checking out.
