New startup program
STEP BY STEP ENTREPRENEURS: Here's a "next step" for wanna-be entrepreneurs: a three-week "pre-accelerator" course led by Startup Weekend, Udacity, TechStars, Startup America Partnership, and original startup whisperer, Steve Blank. Classes will begin in 25 cities on November 8 and are structured along the "flipped" model with hands-on workshops and mentors. Registration fee range from $140 to $299. Xconomy has more details.
