It’s Startup, Not Start-up or Start Up

When I created Startup Revolution and began writing Startup Communities, I insisted with Wiley (my publisher) that the word be “startup” and not “start-up” or “start up” or even “StartUp”.

Read Startup Communities With Me On BookShout!

I don’t think I’m breaking new ground by saying that book publishing is going through a rapid transformation.

Amazon Top 10 Business Books of 2012

Kauffman Sketchbook on Startup Communities

I just finished up at Thinc Iowa and am heading to San Francisco for a few meetings tomorrow. I had an awesome time in the last 24 hours, especially last night hanging out for three hours with 20 or so  entrepreneurs at StartupCity in Des Moines. I started my talk off today by showing a…

As an author, it’s always incredibly exciting to get the actual finished version of a book I’ve written. While I still haven’t seen a physical version of Startup Communities (it’s still in pre-order), the Kindle version is now shipping. If you don’t want to wait any longer for it, you can grab a copy on…
