They covered the ‘Are You An Entrepreneur?’ E-Week Workshop hosted by AIMS, a Stanford postdoctoral entrepreneurship group.
Here’s a summary of their post…
AIMS member, Hyejun Ra (co-president), introduced the event and the two speakers, Eaton and John Gillespie-Brown, a CEO Founder of several companies, angel investor and a mentor at Stanford Engineering and Business Schools, who discussed qualities that make entrepreneurs successful and debunked common myths about entrepreneurs.
“This is a two-part workshop, and tonight our main objective was to lay the foundation. What is entrepreneurship?” Eaton said in an interview after the event. “What are some of the common success traits of entrepreneurship, and what are some of the personalities that have been successful in entrepreneurship?”
The workshop series is intended to help attendees determine whether or not they are entrepreneurs and if they are, how they capitalize on their skills and the resources available to them, Gillespie-Brown said.
Gillespie-Brown opened his talk by discussing why it is critical that entrepreneurs consistently engage in philanthropy and giving.
“Contribution is critical to thinking about the start of a business,” he said, adding that leaders in a company must be supportive of their co-workers, team focused and conscious of the needs of their customers as well as the community at large.
Having launched many startups I know how hard it is to get initial momentum so it’s very important to get lots of feedback and encouragement early on, so here I go again in trying to help!
Another friend Freddy (another serial entrepreneur) has launched Application Craft at the event and the idea behind this very well executed product is build one, deploy to both browsers and mobile devices. I can see this being especially useful for the construction of business processes using complex databases and online forms, not just the creation of basic sites, as the tools make data connection and form design fast and simple.
Application Craft lets Hard-Core Developers and "Citizen Developers" build Apps that run on any web enabled device. You can choose between the AC Cloud (On Demand) or the AC Server (in-house on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X servers).
They have just opened public beta so they need people to signup and try their app online and give feedback. Having used many of these in the past and being a bit of a hacker myself I can say that the product looks excellent and is well worth a look if you build any form of web based app that you want to run in a browser and a phone.
