stanford offers resource for small business

I’m always on the lookout for new resources for entrepreneurs. This morning I stumbled upon Stanford University’s eCorner (short for Entrepreneurship Corner).

The site offers dozens of videos and podcasts featuring interviews and guest lectures by great entrepreneurial minds, including Eric Schmidt and Larry Page of Google, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Carl Schramm of the Kauffman Foundation. Topics range on everything from entrepreneurship’s impact on the economy to how to manage risk, hiring good people, and choosing investors carefully. (To the right is a video from 2003 with serial entrepreneur Jerry Kaplan on mistakes entrepreneurs make.)

You feel like you get the benefit of attending Stanford Business School without paying tuition. You can also sign up for an email newsletter for updates on new additions to the site.

I especially enjoyed watching a lecture by Harvard Business School’s William Sahlman on characteristics of entrepreneurs, which you can watch here.
