The Morning Briefing: Entrepreneurship

Posting in Technology

"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about entrepreneurship.

1.) Do we have too many professors of Entrepreneurship? Do academies devotes too much of its time preparing students for startups?

2.) 5 things every entrepreneur should do before the world ends. "As an entrepreneur facing the end of the world, I believe there are 5 things that all other entrepreneurs should do in the next 24 hours."

3.) Finding 'investor-entrepreneur’ fit (AKA avoiding the Series A crunch). Do we make our investment decisions based on people or on themes?

4.) The 10 most useless buzzwords. No matter how many times you change "learnings" to "lessons" or "paradigm" to … well, something actually meaningful, the jargon keeps pouring in. Despite the setbacks, writers and editors must soldier on -- you're the last line of defense.

5.) Business owners want fiscal-cliff deal for customers. Small-business groups are adding their voices to the chorus of Americans urging Washington politicians to resolve the fiscal cliff crisis before it hits their customers.
