Social Networks for Entrepreneurs

1,043 views

Published on

The social web is democratizing entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is on the rise, and social networks are helping entrepreneurs do everything needed to get their businesses going, from ideating, finding a co-founder, and hiring, to finding investors, managing stakeholders, getting press, and getting much-needed advice.

During April 2013, I spoke with a group of NYU Stern students about the growing social networks for entrepreneurs. Thank you, Professor Arun Sundararajan for inviting me to speak with your "Networks, Crowds and Markets" class!
