  1. Enstitute expands its apprenticeship program to St. Louis

    As student debt skyrockets, the number of college naysayers continues to grow. With this movement comes a number of programs claiming to be better than any university curriculum. I am referring of course to the many MOOCs (massive open online courses) out there, Peter Thiel's $100,000 Thiel Fellowship, and the countless online courses intended to replace MBAs. From all angles there are ways to avoid the astronomical and growing cost of higher education.

  2. Hired.com raises $15M Series A, eyes international expansion

    No matter which way you look at it, there is no painless way to hire talent. For both the employer and the candidate it sucks. Over the last few years, there's been an uptick in new platforms and methods to "disrupt" the hiring process -- something I've remained dubious of.

  3. Businesses Beware: March Madness could also be called Hacker Heaven

    It's that time of the year again: March Madness. If you're me that means constant flashbacks of your father sitting down your entire family for an annual quiz on college sports teams' mascots. If you're other, more normal people, however, that probably means you're aware and have filled out a bracket. Many of us out there have even entered into an office pool.

  4. Here's a crowdfunding campaign about crowdfunding

    Crowdfunding has hit its peak these days. You got a film you want to produce? Make a Kickstarter. You have a new hardware idea? Start an Indiegogo campaign. Hell, do you have a ton of extra Keurig cups lying around, yet refuse to buy a Keurig machine? Why don't you build your own K-cup apparatus and then try and get it funded on Kickstarter.

  5. One woman's pursuit to reclaim Himalayan art using dog pictures

    Michelle Page has been traveling to Nepal for 27 years; she probably never intended to make a business out of it. Neither does she own a dog, yet dog enthusiasts are her prime customer base. Funny how things work out.

  6. Javelin launches its latest Lean Startup product: Experiment Board

    Despite dropping out of business school, Trevor Owens has spent the last four years trying to show people that he knows the right way to build successful businesses, small or big. In fact, he's spearheaded a company whose sole purpose is to teach entrepreneurs the nuts and bolts of business innovation.

  7. A hashtag to combat tech misogyny?

    Late last week came another blow to the claim some make that Valley tech culture is the idyllic meritocratic techno-Arcadia. This revelation stemmed from a TechCrunch article posted Friday alleging negative experiences by a female developer at GitHub, which, the developer says, ultimately led to her resignation. The developer in question, Julie Ann Horvath, has spent the last three days discussing her experience as a female developer at a male-dominated tech company.

  8. Parking ticket app TicketZen expands to six new cities

    Nothing ruins a day quite like getting a parking ticket. That's why many people stow their tickets in their glove compartments and forget about them. Then, of course, come the late fees. And even if you do remember to pay the fine, the process is quite annoying: You have to find an envelope and pay the fee via snail mail, or operate a terribly-designed city website. It's a joyless experience.
