The Holy Trinity of Answer Sites for Startups

Dharmesh Shah, entrepreneur (at HubSpot), angel investor and startup guru, was kind enough to let me put a post on his blog “On Startups”. The piece is entitled “Entrepreneurs: What to do if you don’t have an idea“, which follows up on my last post on establishing credibility.  Dharmesh’s book, Inbound Marketing, along with Steve Blank’s excellent website, were two principal inspirations to start this blog.

OnStartups has good articles relating to angel investing, but where it shines is its advice for entrepreneurs. I especially like the very practical “Answers” section. It, along with searches on Quora and Venture Hacks, should answer virtually any general question related to startups, be it legal, strategic, or practical.

Angels, who by and large are former entrepreneurs, are always getting questions from entrepreneurs and wantrepreneurs. Regardless of the starting expertise of the questioner, I almost always send them to Startup Land’s Holy Trinity of Knowledge–OnStartups, Quora, and VentureHacks.

  1. Kip, it’s not original with me–have heard Dave McClure and others use it. The best way to switch from wantrepreneur to entrepreneur– just do it.
