For my cohost Patrick Foley, as he starts a new monthly column for startups over at Visual Studio Magazine. His first article, Lean Startup: Look Before You Leap is a must read if you still think the way to create your startup is to code first, everything else later.

And, kudos to David Schenberg, CEO of BusyEvent for being selected for the Capital Innovators Program. The program provides $50,000 in seed funding, mentorship from a seasoned pool of knowledgeable entrepreneurs, stellar perks, educational and social events, and the opportunity to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalist firms at the end of the program. Way to go David!
