Hangouts for Entrepreneurs: please take our quick survey and vote for the topic you want to discuss

(And please share this with other entrepreneurs that you know. We need hundreds of responses to make the results meaningful.)

Next week we'll be experimenting with Hangouts for Entrepreneurs. Based on the principles in the books "Love is the Killer App" and "Never Eat Alone," we are going to bring networking and idea sharing among entrepreneurs to a whole new level.

If you don't live in Silicon Valley but want to participate in daily or weekly discussions with dozens of other high-tech entrepreneurs, to share ideas, best-practices, to find technical help, and to find potential business partners for your company, watch this space. Hangouts for Entrepreneurs are on their way.

We'll be recruiting some amazing mentors and guests to help discuss our topics. Years ago I taught entrepreneurship and internet marketing at 2 different universities over 4 years. The secret to my (tongue-in-cheek) popularity was that I invited dozens of amazing guest lecturers–usually the founders of multi-million dollar companies–who freely shared secrets they learned with my students. It was amazing. I was constantly learning from my guest lecturers.

We'll do something similar here, bring mentors right to you via Google Hangouts. But entrepreneurs have to make hundreds of major decisions when starting and running a new business. Sometimes entrepreneurs face questions that more experienced entrepreneurs haven't faced before, because times have changed and the landscape evolves every year. When that happens, entrepreneurs need up-to-date peer advice.

We'll be setting up a format that allows all entrepreneurs to give and receive helpful and timely peer advice — learning on demand — so that entrepreneurs can make better decisions than ever before, about each of the hundreds of choices they have to make in the course of their business.
