Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-05-24

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

This week's top articles include an Investor Minute with Bloomberg Beta partner James Cham; an investor manifesto for Europe; two resources for crowdfunders; and more.

Check out the top startup and entrepreneur articles from the week of May 18th.

Does Startup Speed Kill or Build?

There is no "one right way" to build a company. The Startup Lean presents two differing viewpoints on key entrepreneurial topics for you to decide which way you lean. This week, we ask the question: Which is the more effective growth strategy: Fast or Slow?

The most important question in a startup: Am I being proactive?

Writing on his eponymous blog, Peter Nixey, former CEO of Clickpass and a Y Combinator alumni, asks what he considers the most important question for anyone working on a startup.
