This Week's Must-Read Articles for Entrepreneurs

Posted by Amity Sims on 2013-06-02

Each week we scour the web for insightful articles to share with the Founder Institute network.

This week's top articles include important advice from Richard Branson, how to use kickstarter to innovate, and Adeo Ressi's findings on Entrepreneurial DNA.

 

Check out our must read articles for the week of May 26th - June 2nd:

If you've got a genuinely creative idea — or even a "me, too with a twist" — Kickstarter's "crowd funding" platform offers a genuinely innovative way to finance creativity and innovation. Since its 2009 launch, Kickstarter claims that more than 4.1 million people have pledged over $619 million to fund over 41,000 projects. It's exciting.
