In his first post on a new blog called "Ask The Wizard," Dick Costolo rightfully notes that there a whole bunch of VC blogs discussing the entrepreneurial process from the investor perspective. But there aren't that many blogs discussing company building from the entrepreneur's standpoint. Dick intends to fix that. Ok, he doesn't intend to single-handedly fix the lack entrepreneur blogs. But he has decided to start writing about entrepreneurship. That is great news for entrepreneurs.
Dick is the co-founder and CEO of FeedBurner. Before that he was the co-founder and CEO of a company called SpyOnIt, which he and his co-founders (the same gang building FeedBurner) sold to 724 Solutions. He is not only the prototypical "serial entrepreneur," he is really smart, really funny and can really write. In a few short weeks of blogging about company building, Dick has already written about fund raising, pitching your business, outside board members, non-founder equity, types of investors, resources for entrepreneurs, the hard work, strategic advantages, company culture, and attacking markets. That's a whole lot of great information since February. I look forward to reading more from Dick in the weeks and months to come.
