VCWiz, a tool for discovering seed-stage investors → 

This new platform can help you discover, research, and get introductions to investors and firms. (Keep in mind that this was created by First Round Capital's Dorm Room Fund. We always recommend doing your own research, too!)  


How to prevent your first year as an entrepreneur from crushing you → 

Lots of good advice here for your body, mind, and spirit; but my favorite is this one: "Get ergonomic in an economic way. Ergonomics might seem old school, but taking the time to set up your desk in a way that supports your body is important when much of your work is done on a computer. It doesn’t need to be expensive — instead do some research and get creative with items you already have."
Founder of the Week: Linda Solomon Wood → 

Solomon Wood is the Founder and CEO of National Observer; a digital daily investigative news site that, just three years in, is winning prestigious awards (including the first-ever National Newspaper Award to a digital-only site), and is on the path to becoming entirely funded by readers.

This is all going on in my apartment. My kids were small and running around, there were always interns here. And then that spring, we were nominated for a really big award” — a Canadian Journalism Foundation award.

Win a free trip to SXSW (flights + hotel + badges) →

35 "Shark Tank" secrets that will f**k you up a little  

"The original Shark Tank franchise aired in Japan, under the name Money Tigers. It then moved to the UK, and was renamed Dragon's Den. That show was then brought to Canada. Finally, it reached the US under the name Shark Tank."

Note from Caitlin: Money Tigers sounds like a GREAT band name.
