Bill believes that shared workspaces are one key to creating the energy and relationships for startups. Now called the Brickyard Collaboration Space, it is run by the owner of the building.Starting in 2004, and continuing to today, he began work on a book about “How to Build Your Startup From the Heart.” This book is based on my experiences and on what he has learned from angel investing over the years.In 2008, Bill worked with Tom Hopcroft and Heather Johnson at MassTLC, they created a new type of conference focused on helping early stage entrepreneurs. Called the MassTLC Innovation unConference, the most recent event sponsored 160 entrepreneurs and gathered over 600 people to help them.Bill’s focus now is on helping entrepreneurs with tools that are part of my Build Your Startup From the Heart work. One of those tools is very early stage investing, usually about $25,000. He generally likes to be the very first money into the company. He is willing (and even prefer) investing so early that the only traction is in the entrepreneur’s head. Bill chooses his investments based mainly on the entrepreneur, and not on the details of the idea.
