My favorite collection of entrepreneur lectures is from Stanford University’s Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Series. I highly recommended downloading these from iTunes or listening to them while you work. You can find scores of incredibly valuable lectures here. One of my favorite’s is a recent lecture by Reid Hoffman, founder and Chairman of LinkedIn.com.
The best online collection of interviews with startup entrepreneurs is probably at npost.com. There are 167 so far.
One is a Jan 31st interview with David Sacks, the founder of Geni.com.

The little nuggets I get from your blog are greatly appreciated, but I’d really like it if you could franchise yourself (or at least the academy) and take your wealth of knowledge into other locales.
This academy concept would be great in major cities and near college campuses. And you could even work with local orgs (franchisee?) that create small or shared workspace so that “The Franchise” is not burdened with the fixed costs of facilities.
I’m ready for this first roll out in the Portland Oregon area…
Thanks for this post I love this kind of information. I wanted you to know I recently went through my google reader and tried to “weed the garden” Anyone who wasn’t saying interesting things was cut. I went from about 150 blogs down to about 100, you made the cut again.
I love the Geni site and have already added everyone I could think of. Currently I am only growing my tree horizontally I am waiting until the GEDCOM support comes online before I input dead relatives.
Thank you! Those interviews are great! Thanks for sharing them.
Some of the best articles I’ve seen written on the specific topic of startup companies are by Paul Graham on http://www.paulgraham.com
[…] I’m not sure how I came across Paul Allen’s blog, but I’m glad I did. He posted this gem about how the Stanford Technology Ventures Program uploads lectures every week from entrepreneurs who come to talk on campus. There’s about 40 podcasts in the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Seminar. They have venture capitalists and founders who speak of their beginnings and give great advice. I’ve listened to the 4 latest, and can’t recommend this series highly enough. […]
Thanks for the link to this series. I have listened to 4 already, and think they are a fantastic resource for budding entrepreneurs. Really great info in there.
