I am looking for ten people who will volunteer to be an editor on a new Wiki for entrepreneurs, one that will identify the best entrepreneurs of all time and the decisions that they made that led to their success.
We'll organize quotes from the entrepreneurs and extracts from biographies and business histories into a taxonomy or decision tree. So any entrepreneur who wants to know how to bootstrap, how to recruit advisory board members, how to get their first sale, how to find a strategic partner, or how to find an angel investor, will be able to visit the Wiki, click on one or two links, and then read hopefully dozens of actual quotes from actual entrepreneurs telling their story -- how they did it.
Our goal is to spark the imagination of entrepreneurs by making it easy for them to read how others succeeded each step of the way.
I don't have time to blog today...I'm preparing to fly out for the AlwaysOn Network event at Stanford...but I got this email about a very cool "wisdom of the crowds" concept where a group of 2,500 or so individuals will build and manage a new business by voting on the plan, who to hire, products to create, how to market them, etc. It's really a wild notion. I hope some journalist will pick up on this, interview the creator, watch the creation of this business over time, and write some interesting story about it.
I'm trying to compile a list of 10-20 recruiters in Utah. I'm going to contact all of them to see if they might be interested in the Team Building Event that I am planning. The more qualified applicants we get for this founders retreat, the more successful it will be.
