Office Hours on Thursday 11/4/10 at the Boulder Book Store

David Cohen and I will be hanging out at the Boulder Book Store from 1pm to 5pm on Thursday 11/4/10.  Come see us, buy a copy of Do More Faster (and we’ll sign it), and ask us any questions you want.  It’ll be a chaotic version of my Community Hours – instead of having 15…

Wandering The Earth Like Caine From Kung Fu

As week two of the Do More Faster book tour winds down (with a full day at MSNerd doing the 2010 version of ADPrentice with Sameer Gandhi from Accel Partners and Mark Siegel from Menlo Ventures), I’m starting to feel like Caine from Kung Fu. Master Po: Close your eyes. What do you hear? Young…

Hey Mom, I’m A Book Salesman

I love my partners at Foundry Group.  They keep me humble.  Very humble.  I speculate that the following video is the work of Jason Mendelson.  Payback will be sweet. On a more serious note, Andrew Warner has a great interview with my co-author and TechStars CEO David Cohen up on Mixergy. Oh – and if you…

The Do More Faster Book Tour – Week 2

Well, week 1 of the Do More Faster book tour was a blast, but I’ve contemplated renaming it the “Do More Faster And Then Sleep All Weekend to Recover Book Tour” based on the empirical data from my 24 hour sleep session from Saturday at noon to Sunday at noon. The book tour is in…

KRON Channel 4 Do More Faster Interview

David Cohen and I were interviewed on KRON Channel 4 in San Francisco for Do More Faster.  It was our first TV interview around the book and was fun. It’s a good example of giving more than you get and letting the universe do its thing.  Gary DiGrazia, the CEO of Mindjamz, emailed me with…

Do More Faster in PE Hub

I periodically write the first column for PE Hub.  Dan Primack, who is now writing a great column at Fortune called Term Sheet used to do this; there are now guest writers (including me) who do this column.  Yesterday, I wrote a column about the book that David Cohen and I just wrote called Do…

Angels In The Architecture

One of the events on our Do More Faster book tour will be something we are calling Angels in the Architecture.  Mike Platt from Cooley (one of our book tour sponsors) came up with the idea of doing an hour long session with a panel of entrepreneurs, angel investors, and VCs discussing the dynamics between…

Entrepreneurial Story Telling

I think the best way for entrepreneurs – especially first time or aspiring ones – to learn is to hear stories from other entrepreneurs.  That was one of the motivations for David Cohen and I to write Do More Faster. There are two such stories in Westword Denver this week.  Both are companies I’ve been…

The First Week of the Do More Faster Tour

With the release of our book “Do More Faster: TechStars Lessons to Accelerate Your Startup“, my co-author David Cohen and I are taking the show on the road.  Next week is Palo Alto on Tuesday, Los Angeles on Thursday, and Seattle on Friday. In most cities, we are doing four separate events: Pitch More Faster:…

Introducing Do More Faster

About a year ago David Cohen and I were having a beer together talking about ways to capture all the different things we’d learned about early stage entrepreneurship from running the TechStars program.  In a moment of insanity, we decided to write a book. The result is Do More Faster: TechStars Lessons to Accelerate Your…
