Startup thinking – the people who have most influenced my thinking on startups.

Steve Blank and Eric Ries

Steve Blank teaches entrepreneurship at the Haas Business School in Berkeley, but has a pretty serious pedigree as a tech entrepreneur himself. I’m ashamed to admit that I still haven’t read The 4 Steps to the Epiphany, but I’ve read most of what he’s posted online.

Eric Ries is a protege of Steve Blank’s, applies and develops many of the same ‘lean’ ideas, and focuses specifically on web startups.

See the links for both Steve Blank and Eric Ries here.

Paul Graham

He’s a tour de force and a hero of mine. One of the early proponents of ‘release early, iterate often’.

Joel Spolsky

These are my favorite as they relate to HR:
