Cory Miller, CEO of iThemes, has launched a new personal project called StartupSofa, what he calls “a community for aspiring entrepreneurs and startup rookies.” He teased StartupSofa via Twitter on January 1st, and officially launched it on January 7th.
Miller describes his two grandfathers’ entrepreneurial spirits and how their passion and work ethic inspired him to take the plunge into his own startup. Now he wants to help you do it too:
After living my own lifelong dream and the one modeled for me by those grandfathers, I wanted to create a community for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to start businesses and startup rookies who want to take their existing businesses to the next level.
StartupSofa’s first event is a webinar on January 14th at 11 a.m. central time, “First Steps to Launching Your Business Dream”. In addition to Webinars, Miller intends to keep up an active blog and a community forum. You can also take a survey to submit your own “Sofa topics” for the site to cover and share your startup story.
StartupSofa could be a good opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to get inside the mind of one of the WordPress community’s most successful members. You can read more about StartupSofa on the about page or view the introductory video after the jump.
