Entrepreneurship  - 
 
Hey people,

I am constructing a business plan, and even with my finance and investment banking background, the model is holding up the rest of the business activities... Can anyone suggest a course of action for this financial model? I want to avoid all the bs finance wizardry and just power forward with the biz.

No, actually the business is based around a tangible product to be sold in selective markets. In other words, it involves e commerce, but it is not a "tech startup". That brings up another topic altogether...

The problem is that the facts around the assumptions are changing so rapidly, it is adding unnecessary complexity to the financial model, thus wasting time and leaving me tied up when I could be doing other things. The partners are waiting on it so we can start looking for funding.

I have noticed an omnipresent trend... that unless your startup/business idea is based around web & mobile apps (that is your product) as opposed to web  & mobile as a complement to your physical product, your business gets shunned by the startup culture and financiers. Thoughts?

As this community grows, I'll add sections for entrepreneurs looking for new hires or partners, and industry specific sections if the demand is there

Jason Nazar, cofounder of DocStoc, has a lot of good stuff to say, whether you are in an online business or not. There are also some good tips we can apply in our daily relationships. Worth every minute.

Hi! I am the owner of one of the communities you wanted to join. I am so sorry but I made it just for fun because my friend and I were learning Spanish and that's what we named our little school. Sorry.

A very realistic statement about education from Mr. Wozniak AKA father of modern PCs AKA "the other Steve".
 
Woz dropping some gems over at Gizmodo right now: "If you have college courses in CS, buy the books and spend day and night the few days before class going through the books and taking notes and answering questions and programming examples before the first class even starts. If you really want to do this in your life, that's what you should do, not just wait for the education to be handed you. Those who finish at the top will always be in high demand. You can learn outside of school too but you have to put a lot of time into it. It doesn't come easily. Small steps, each improving on the other, is what to expect, not instant understanding and expertise. " (emphasis mine)
You all know Steve Wozniak. If you're using a computer today is partly because this man created some really awesome things. You know, like changing the world with the other Steve.

Great Darjeeling! Nice collegiate atmosphere. With some investment, this place can become as great as Panther Coffee. Wish it didn't close on Sunday, though.

Great service, good at tidying up the area without being invasive! This time I had the wings and the tuna melt. Even though they were a little stingy with the cheese, they made up for it with good portion of tuna. They had excellent hot wings, and the barbecued ones seemed like they were not as cooked, but there was no indication of a health concern. They were good anyway. The desert, Capt'n jacks buried treasure, was full of chocolatey ice cream goodness. Must try, if diabetes and heart disease is not an immediate concern.

Lotus is pretty awesome. The six of us were cordially accommodated at a table, promptly served, and were left alone to enjoy the food and company, with the waiter popping in to check on us occasionally. The food was great! Perfect rice and dessert was offered.
