Some Very Useful Advice for Startups from Guy Kawasaki

April 4, 2012

In case you missed it, Guy Kawasaki, a former Apple success story and now a successful venture capitalist, has posted a three-part series of excellent articles for entrepreneurs on his blog They are very informative, and come with downloadable templates for Microsoft Office. They are

 1. How to Create an Enchanting Pitch (includes a sample PowerPoint presentation)

 2. How to Create an Enchanting Business Plan (includes an outline of a business plan in Word)

 3. How to Create an Enchanting Financial Forecast (includes sample Excel files)

 I also really like two of his earlier blog articles:  

 The Top Ten Lies of Venture Capitalists

 The Top Ten Lies of Entrepreneurs

 There are many other excellent articles on his blog that are worth checking out.
