"On June 21st, 2011 we (Amy Batchelor and Brad Feld) celebrated our 18th year of being married. Like any couple, we’ve had our ups and downs, but we feel like we’ve figured a lot of things out. As a result, we’ve decided to write a book called “Startup Marriage: Balancing Entrepreneurship And Relationship.” We’ve got plenty of work to do – this blog tracks our progress."

How to approach an investor at a conference like #tcdisrupt

I've been thinking about bread for the last couple of days.

No, not bread... bre.ad, a new startup launching whose founder has perfected the art of the conference pitch. I was sitting at lunch at Techcrunch Disrupt in the middle of a bunch of people. The guy leans in and says, "Hey Charlie, sorry to interrupt, my name is Alan, I'm with bre.ad, I'm going to follow up with an e-mail to you about our startup. Just wanted you to match the name to a face." He put his card in my hand, and after 5 seconds, was off. No pitch, nothing more.

Minimum Viable Intro.

Startup Professionals Musings: Viral Marketing For Startups is Not Enough Today

Startup Professionals Musings: Viral Marketing For Startups is Not Enough Today | Startup Advice | Scoop.it
Viral marketing and word-of-mouth are not enough these days to make your product and brand visible in the relentless onslaught of new promotional media out there today. Innovation in marketing is perhaps more important than product innovation. Yet in the business plans I see, the marketing content and budget are smaller than ever.

More than just spending, you need to create an “experience” in this digital age which sets you apart from the banner ads, email blasts, and old-school websites out there today. According to a recent book by Rick Mathieson, these have morphed into a digital universe of augmented reality, advergames, and virtual worlds – that are highly personalizable and uniquely shareable.
