Some wonderful insights and very thought provoking presentations at Startup School. Particularly interesting one is by David (RoR), from 37Signals that clears lots of clouds in the minds of today's budding entrepreneurs and wide open world of startups.
He outlined a practical strategy of building a great business. Anything I would say to summarize would be too limiting the invaluable lessons learnt and demonstrated by 37Signals, so go ahead and watch the video.
