As a student, you are welcome to “steal” my best stuff. I encourage you to “Finding Forrester” with 007. It’s what I do as EIR here and in Palo Alto.

Have you seen ‘Finding Forrester’, the Sean Connery movie where he mentors a student in writing by copy pasting. Each first paragraph, the student copy-pastes Sean Connery’s Pulitzer prize winning piece. Then after the first paragraph, the student writes original work.

This copy paste method removes the barrier to starting.

Isnt starting the most difficult part of entrepreneurship?? It is and this 9:59 video helps. It previews the concept of a sequel business to a business that you did not start

It moves you to the right on the entrepreneur bell curve. But you will have to re watch it and google the phrases and acronyms. Sequels in Hollywood reduce risk to the people that finance them. Your first company should be a sequel entity to a business that you didn’t start.

Report. This is from last year.

Check out this video on VC MIT EIR Report ‘Entrepreneur Status’

Forecast by altering MIT Entrepreneur Week YOURSELVES

The key to the 2013 Entrepreneur Week will be for you guys to DO SOMETHING SUPER SMALL but highly visible or highly confidence building. You pick. You can even do it anonymously using an alter ego

Explore the new concept of franchising without franchise fees or loss of equity via my Yahoo column on “What They Don’t Teach at Business School”. It’s called Anchor and Satellite franchises

ENGR145 is a class I taught at Stanford. I soap boxed two concepts to lever: Lemonade and Gua Gua Guacamole for entrepreneurship.
