At BuildUp we’re passionate about “building”, hence the name, BuildUp. We encourage founders and developers to build MVPs, iterate fast and release often. With that being said, we’re happy to announce BUILDBox by BUILDUP.

BUILDBox curates the best building resources for technology entrepreneurs, daily..

We look for the best developer resources, design resources, links, videos, frameworks, hacks, icons and inspirational articles for entrepreneurs. We’re also big fans of new mobile apps, themes, PSDs, tech events and technology products builders find useful. Entrepreneurs can up vote their favorite resource after logging in and creating a profile. If you prefer to receive a daily recap of resources in your email inbox from BUILDBox you can subscribe to the newsletter. BUILDBox was inspired by Hackernews and we like to think of it as “ProductHunt meets Launch Ticker” for Technology Entrepreneurs who love to build.

BUILDBox is built using the MeteorJS , a complete open source platform for building web and mobile apps in pure JavaScript. Along with using the Telescope community framework, hacked with with Bootstrap and designed by Wayne Sutton.

As our goal is to find the best building resources daily! We know we can’t do it alone, therefore we’re asking fellow entrepreneurs and developers to sign up and submit resources they find useful. Popular Resources will be approved. You can also suggest a link by sending us a tweet @buildboxapp.

Another goal for BUILDBox is to connect companies that are looking for amazing talent. If you’re hiring we would love to feature your job listing on our Jobs page.  Email us at jobs@buildup.vc for more information on how to list your position. If you’re looking for work fill out our form here and we’ll do our best to connect you with a company in our network.

We’re looking forward to helping more developers and entrepreneurs build world changing solutions with BUILDBox.

The Wall Street Journal launches a new “online forum” to provide mentorship and advice to startups and entrepreneurs. The online forum is called “The Accelerators“. The Accelerators will feature 20 individuals ranging from “successful entrepreneurs, angel investors, venture capitalists, and technology and business thinkers”. Among the list of thinkers, investors include, Kevin Colleran, Bill Gurley, Steve Blank, Alexa Hirschfeld, Brad Feld, Charles Hudson, Michael Lazerow, Naval Ravikant, and myself.

I have been selected to be one of the 20 contributors of The Accelerators and looking forward to sharing my experiences from working in the technology/startup space over the last 12 plus years. “Look Ma” I even have my own Wall Street Journal dot drawing.

The question for this week on the Wall Street Journal Accelerators was “What are the three things you need to ask yourself to make sure you have what it takes to attempt a startup?”
Part of my answer was that before you attempt a startup you need to ask yourself, “Can you give 100%?”. You can read my full response here on the ask yourself why post.

I’m excited about the opportunity to be one of the Wall Street Journal “Startup Gurus” and looking forward to sharing my feedback each week.
