Free is always welcomed and that said, Good morning, All, and we’ve always said that what every startup needs is…help. And exposure doesn’t hurt either, especially when along with it comes…help.

So, Job Generation is coming up next week – May 4th, to be exact. This Ibreakfast.com event is an excellent way to get you story out to VCs – and maybe show up on TV. In this forum, experienced executives get to advise you on how they would run your company; VCs will judge your business plan and you get advice and buy-in from investors in return. One company raised 10x the norm by dealing with one of these execs ($900K for a FaceBook-based start-up) through a savvy deal with connected investors. Participants at the last show received exposure on NY1 and all over the TimeWarner cable system.

Start-Ups: To enter, send your business plan to bp@ibreakfast.com or go to www.ibreakfast.com and use the Submit Business Plan link. Read More...

Good morning, All, and yes, we’re sponsoring and passing along a bit of the largesse. First three people to respond get a free pass. It starts this evening and the link to register is in the post below, so email us now (hello@startuponestop.com) but if we haven’t responded within 10 minutes, assume they’re taken and we still hope to see you there!

Also, Job Generation is coming next week and if you’re a startup who’d like to present, again, email us and don’t forget – it is a unique way of getting your startup in front of potential investors. And get some great feedback as well. More info about the event is in the post below. We have quite a few new startups on the list this week, and you all should go to the link and think about presenting. Do us proud!

I know we usually have more to say, but between peeling off the moss that’s gathered from all the rains that just hit NYC and well, allergy problems, we’re keeping it short and pithy. Relish the silence while it’s here and in the meantime, help is on the way… Read More...

Good morning, All, and what a news week, eh? Next gen iPhone revealed. Crain’s New York Business reporting that NY’s startup funding is rising as Silicon Valley’s falls. (Blip or trend? No answer yet, but latest quarterly data show the venture capital industry is healthy here. Hot money likes Pierpoint, Yodle and, of course, FourSquare.) full story is here: http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article/20100416/SMALLBIZ/100419903

And next week is Social Cinema week! More info in the post below and StartupOneStop is one of the sponsors, so we do hope to see at least some of you there.

To the startups on the list: Job Generation is still open to including some of you in the May 4th event – email hello@startuponestop.com if you want to participate and it is a unique way to get in front of investors. It’s quite enjoyable as well – we did go to the last one and the story was reported on NY1, so think about it. Read More...

Good morning, All. It was just a thought, and for all we know, T.S. Eliot was just a fellow allergy sufferer.

Anyway, happy April 15 (is that an oxymoron?) and a heads up to the startups on the list: Job Generation is looking for a few good startups to present at their next event. In case you don’t know the drill: This event gets you in front of VCs in a whole new way. 5 Start-Ups will present their plans to the audience, after which a select group of CEOs will offer their leadership and sales strategies. A team of early stage VC’s will adjudicate them – determining which execs are most likely to add value to the companies. The official post will be coming soon, but if you’re a startup and want to participate, email us at hello@startuponestop.com.

Exactly what time does the post office close? Read More...

Good morning, All, and the purpose of the 2010 Entrepreneurs Census is to measure the funding environment, talent base, mentorship, and media coverage available to new ventures in Boston, New York and Silicon Valley in hopes that the public and private leaders in each region will use this information to build on existing strengths and address current deficiencies. So please do take 3-5 minutes minutes of your time to help this not-for-profit effort get some facts and figures and thanks! The link to the survey – and more info – is in the post below.

Good morning, All, and it has come to our attention that the only time we’ve really made it clear how to post to the list is when we sent out the announcement launching StartupOneStop, and, well, we’ve gotten one or two or legions of new members since then, so here’s how you do it, since so many of you ask:

Step #1: Go to the StartupOneStop.com website.
Step #2: Click on the second link down, left hand side: ‘Post to the list.’
Step #3: Self-explanatory from here – then hit ‘submit’

Keep those cards and letters coming in. We’re always happy to hear from you – and always here to help. You’re always welcome to invite friends and colleagues to join as well, btw. And that would be the first link, left hand side: “Sign up for our list.” Read More...
