The idea is to provide an open video platform where interviews of company founders are gathered.
In effect, FounderLY will compile a living history of the birth of startups.
FounderLY got some high profile press coverage today, April 5, 2011, on TechCrunch with ‘FounderLY Wants To Be A Library For Entrepreneurs’ Stories’ and on ReadWriteWeb with FounderLY: An Open Platform for Sharing Startup Stories.
I’ve been making a significant effort to make new friends, and it’s exciting that I personally know 2 of 6 of the entrepreneurs featured at launch on the FounderLY website – Michelle Zatlyn of CloudFlare and Nadar Ghaffari of ShortForm.
I met Ghaffari last year at the Haas Entrepeneurs special interest group I attend regularly. Ghaffari’s FounderLY video appears below.
