Startup Junkies: Is this an addiction? Is our topic on The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet. Thinking about the term “startup junkie” and I can’t quite figure it out. “Junkie,” indicates some kind of addiction but, unlike heroin or meth, “startups” aren’t a clearly defined drug that you buy on the corner. In fact, if you really think about it, startups aren’t really a definable thing at all but more like a messy, unpredictable process. Are these people really addicted to uncertain processes and outcomes, or is it something else? I’m willing to bet that the vast majority of people who call themselves startup junkies are actually addicted to something other than the difficult task of starting and growing a profitable business. This show is sponsored by Apple Capital Group, Inc.
Chris Campbell of Startup Weekend will join Charles Mudd to discuss the startup culture in Chicago, Illinois.
Chris Campbell is a volunteer Global Facilitator for Startup Weekend and has been one of the local organizers for Chicago since 2009. Startup Weekend is a global network of passionate leaders and entrepreneurs on a mission to inspire, educate, and empower individuals, teams and communities.
From Startup Weekend's website:
"Startup Weekends are weekend-long, hands-on experiences where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds.
Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts."
Join Charles Mudd with Chris Campbell to discuss the Startup Weekend phenomenon; the Startup Weekend process in more detail; success stories; and more.

Successful completion of a business incubation program increases the likelihood that a startup company will stay in business for the long term: older studies found 87% of incubator graduates stayed in business, in contrast to 44% of all firms. Some incubator success stories include Airbnb, Dropbox, and Heroku.
On this episode we are privileged to be joined by Taylor Hazelhurst, director of a new type of incubator, Creative Factory (www.nothingistoobig.com), located in West Palm Beach, FL. Taylor will tell us about their extremecubator concept which uses a factory model to produce successful startups. We’ll talk about the processes used in the Creative Factory including:
Tooling - how the right tooling gets the job done quicker and cheaper
Planning - blueprints for success
Assembly - managing the project
Fulfillment - scaling and marketing beyond the startup phase
Co-host Charles Mudd discussed non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). In particular, he discussed NDAs in the context of a recent Slashdot headline that suggested some programmers will not sign NDAs. Attorneys will always recommend needing an NDA before revealing trade secret or confidential information. However, some individuals will never begin a conversation with you if you hand them an NDA in the initial handshake. How do you balance protecting your idea and developing relationships with individuals or entities who will not sign an NDA?
How are Mutual NDAs different?
Charles Mudd discusses these questions and more on Startup Radio.

Chelsey Bingham appeared on Startup Radio to discuss her business Wiseling which has reinvented the marketplace for online vintage clothing. With Chelsey in the midst of her first startup, the conversation will include topics related to startups, strategies, online commerce, clothing and more.
Rather than attempt to resale purchased clothing in the vast marketplace provided by other broad sector online resources, Wiseling allows individuals to sell their clothing in a niche market designed specifically for resale of the product.
Prior to co-founding Wiseling, Chelsey worked as an Executive Editor for AVANT Magazine. She graduated from Utah State University in 2006 with a B.A. in Communications and attended New York University for Design and Applied Arts.
In June 2012, Fast Company featured Chelsey Bingham and Wiseling.
