Fundraising Cribsheet: Guide To The Fundraising Manifesto

 

In 2010 I started writing a series of blogs titled "Fundraising Cribsheet" describing our experience raising a $1MM round for AppMakr.com.

My goal has been to allow other entrepreneurs to raise money more efficiently than the 14 weeks it took us.  Brendan Baker, an MBA student at Oxford University, has added a deep layer of analysis to this experience by doing his thesis on our fundraising experience.  Brendan's initial work is outlined in this blog post, with much more analysis here.

Here is my guide to this manifesto on fundraising, so you can consume the information in the chunks most relevant to you:

Using Evernote to Clip Online Recipes

On Mike Dariano

Holy crap am I a dummy. I love using Evernote. I love online recipes. I love combining two loves. Peanut butter and chocolate, movies and popcorn, flights without children. I love linking this to that and somehow I missed a beauty, Evernote and recipes.

Just like the pilgrims discovering new land, I've discovered a new way to use Evernote, but it will include more technology and less extermination of native people.

To start, grab the Evernote Web Clipper. Connect the web clipper to your Evernote account and prepare to get your mind blown and stomach filled. Navigate to your favorite recipe - maybe Alton Brown's Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe - and clip as a "Simplified Article". Then through the magic* of the internet, it gets saved to your Evernote account. This is level one, the pilgrims landing and unloading the boat in frigid Virginia.

Open up your Evernote program - download this if you don't have it - then highlight all the bullet points, deselect bullet points, and make them check boxes. Viola, you have a shopping list! This is the pilgrims time traveling to today and seeing people surfing in sunny California.

Clipping the recipe like this also includes the recipe instructions, which means I'll be able to make a turkey, so long as I can keep the mashed potatoes off the iPad screen.
