Good morning, All, and we know some of you have startups in the education space, sooo – your bonus today is Kaufman Labs Education Ventures bootcamp for – of course, education startups. Deadline for consideration is September 20. An SOS member brought it to our attention, and we believe in sharing. When appropriate. Don’t touch my coffee in the morning. Don’t even think about it.

Seriously.

Details and application forms for KLE is here: http://www.kauffmanlabs.org/?gclid=CKWCpYHIiaMCFRNO5QodajRWew Read More...

Good morning, All, and an SOS member brought these guys to our attention – and they’re on David Lerner’s early stage investor map – yet. Good news: their focus is primarily on NYC and the surrounding NE and Mid-Atlantic area companies, in software, IT, Internet, tech-enabled services, business services, digital media, mobile and health care IT. Average investments are $100k-$500k. More info on their website: arcangelfund.com.

Read on: there’s an investor on the list who’s looking for startups to fund.

Next, Bootstrapper Summit is October 5, and they’re looking for startups who want to present to the angel and investors who will be there in the room. Here’s the link to apply: http://bit.ly/bRmhth. Yes, there are associated fees. Exact size of these fees depends on the stage of the company and the size of the proposed raise. BUT, do make sure to mention that you’re a StartupOneStop member for an additional 20% discount. Read More...

Good morning, All, and yes, David Lerner has mapped the whole venture
ecosystem for us – and others – in New York, Silicon Valley and Boston.
You’ll find it here and he even includes twitter handles, when possible.
http://bit.ly/9wTCJL. So, anyone out there wants to do a Saul
Steinberg-style Entrepreneur’s View of the US Venture Community? If you need
a reference point: http://bigthink.com/ideas/21121- and if only moi could
draw. Hint: The Flatiron District, Sand Hill Road and Route 128 should all
be prominently featured, for the artists on the list who don’t get around
much.

That was fun, now on with the show. Congratulations to list members Pixable
on their write-up in Time Out New York last week. The piece is here:

Update: our next ‘Find-A-Cofounder’ III event will not be until early
October. Still, if you need one in the meantime, you’re always welcome to
post to the list, because we’re always here to help. Read More...

Good morning, All, and before it’s over – the summer, that is – some summer reading for startups:
