What are they doing that makes money without them creating/inventing opportunities? One might think they all have jobs, but they don’t – only 61% of world’s population have any sort of a job.

    Becoming An Entrepreneur (Infographic)

    This is an infographic about the mindset of an entrepreneur and what to do to become one.

    By Anna Vital (Founder, Funders & Founders)

    To do a startup, you need to think very simplistically in many ways.

    From what I have seen working with hundreds of startup founders, it is often those that stay “hungry and foolish,” as Steve jobs put it, that are able to find a solution to a problem people have and build a business out of it.

    Entrepreneurship is more about the actions you take, not the person you are. If you take action, you are ahead of the vast majority of people, who talk about entrepreneurship, but never build anything.

    Coming Up With A Business Idea (Infographic)

    “Start with a high-level problem space that you’re passionate about, then narrow it down from there.”

    By Jessica Mah (Co-Founder & CEO, InDinero)

    Our friends at GiftRocket put together a very cool infographic on Paul Graham’s “Startup Ideas We’d Like to Fund”. Back in 2008, he put together 30 problem spaces he thought startups should tackle.

    inDinero specifically attacks idea #21:

    21. Finance software for individuals and small businesses. Intuit seems ripe for picking off. The difficulty is that they’ve got data connections with all the banks. That’s hard for a small startup to match. But if you can start in a neighboring area

    How To Raise Money For Your Startup (Infographic)

    Build your first web startup prototype with Wix, Weebly, WordPress, etc.

    By Anna Vital (Founder, Funders & Founders)

    Over the last three years I have seen over a thousand startups in their early stages. I witnessed many of them go from an idea to funding within several months. I have also seen some of them fundraising for years and not getting anywhere.

    When it comes to funding, there is one thing that can increase your chance of getting funded astronomically – traction. Yet, founders often struggle to get traction and hope that investor money will help them get it. This problem can be solved if you start lean, test your product and and gather meaningful feedback from your customers.

    Silicon Alley And Silicon Valley (Interactive Infographic)

    By Harrison Kratz (Community Manager, MBA@UNC)

    For decades, Silicon Valley has been synonymous with innovation. It is difficult to dispute this claim given that it’s the home to technology and Internet giants such as Apple, Google, and Facebook. While it hasn’t lost its staying power, other hotspots for entrepreneurship and technology have emerged over the past ten years, in particular, New York’s “Silicon Alley”.

    Who I had not seen talk before, however, is Amanda Cox, whose name is often featured on quite some innovative works, such as the voronoi treemap showing the Consumer Price Index, the interactive timeline revealing Michael Jackson’s career statistics, the streamgraphs that map how people spend

    Women and Mentoring in the U.S. (LinkedIn Infographic)

    By Nicole Williams (Connection Director, LinkedIn)

    LinkedIn’s latest study found (in a survey of nearly 1,000 female professionals in the U.S.) that 82% of women agree that having a mentor is important.

    But what will knock your socks off is that considering the competitive employment landscape, and the universal belief that mentorship is a critical component to career success, 19% (that’s nearly 1 out of every 5 women) have NEVER had a mentor.

    Here is an infographic from LinkedIn:
