Here’s the roadmap you need to create for your startup — and why it’s important Here’s the roadmap you need to create for your startup — and why it’s important Yesterday I talked about the importance of setting goals in relation to my angel investing. Today I want to talk about the importance of a roadmap for your startup. Now, I’m not talking about a product roadmap, I’m talking about a startup roadmap that details all aspects of the business.

Europe's top startup countries: the good, the bad and the ugly (Editor’s note: this article was written by in connection with a partnership with the upcoming Le Web conference in Paris, and was cross-posted on their blog.) At the upcoming LeWeb conference in Paris, I’ll be co-hosting the European Forum, a series of sessions on the Eiffel stage that will shine a light on six of Europe’s top ‘startup nations’. You can see the full LeWeb programme here, but essentially we’ll be dedicating the morning of Thursday 11 December to highlighting the opportunities and challenges of the booming tech ecosystems in the UK, Israel, Germany, France, Russia and Sweden.

Job Board Written by Robert Greiner on March 12, 2012 If you are a proud owner of a Github account (free or paid) and are looking for a new job, it might be in your best interest to let Github know you are looking for a new job.

Most foreigners must apply for a respective self-employed visa through the German diplomatic missions in their country of residence before coming to Germany. Only very few states are privileged and can travel to Germany without a visa in order to then apply for the residence permit that allows self-employment here in Germany. These priviledged countries are Australia, Israel, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, South Korea and the USA.
