129: I’m an Entrepreneur, And You Can Too: FounderDating cofounder Jessica Alter

March 10, 2015 at 10:45AM • 52 minutes • Wiki Entry

Today’s guest is Jessica Alter (@jalter), Cofounder & Chief Connector of FounderDating, “a Linkedin for entrepreneurs.” Jessica and @zeldman discuss growing an online community while maintaining quality and avoiding spam and anti-patterns; how to become an advisor or cofounder; the biggest mistake budding entrepreneurs make; getting to your first customers; why the people side of things—experiential information—is more important than ever (and more important than fundraising); and how listeners can empower themselves to become entrepreneurs.
