I need help from some entrepreneurs and business school professors or students.
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.
The wiki is live, but it’s not ready for public consumption until we
have our volunteer editors in place. It is being sponsored by FundingUniverse.com.
The requirement for an editor is to spend about an hour each day adding
content to the Wiki (in keeping with our guidelines) and then, when we
launch publicly, to spend an hour each day making sure that the Wiki
content from outside contributors stays true to our mission.
We hope this turns into the Wikipedia for entrepreneurs worldwide.
