A video interview from TalkTech:
"This video focuses exclusively on early-stage startup advice for aspiring entrepreneurs. Thomas Stocking and David Dennis at GroundWork Open Source walk through the process of starting a company, step-by-step, covering everything from selecting a winning product idea to negotiating VC funding."
I wholehearted agree with the advice to find people you respect (but may not necessarily like) to help you vet your idea/business. I wrote more about this in an earlier post.
