HourlyNerd Helps Businesses Hire MBAs on the Cheap — Editor's note: Vote for your favorite company from among this year's 30 Under 30. will announce the 2015 Readers' Choice winner on April 30. When Rob Biederman and some Harvard Business School classmates came up with the idea for HourlyNerd, their next step was to vet the idea with their would-be customers: small businesses.

There's Big Money Out There-If You Don't Need It — The words "zero-percent returns," when applied to venture capital, always inspire a raised eyebrow. That's never been more the case than in Kevin Kinsella's recent piece for VentureBeat. Kinsella, founder of VC firm Avalon Ventures, writes that many venture capital firms appear to be "logo-hunting" unicorns, or startups that have achieved billion-dollar valuations.

How LSTN Gives Voice to Socially Conscious Headphones — Editor's note: Vote for your favorite company from among this year's 30 Under 30. will announce the 2015 Readers' Choice winner on April 30. A good set of headphones allows you to sink back and forget about the world for a while. That's the opposite of what Bridget Hilton wants you to do.

Why Entrepreneurs Think Clinton's the Pro-Business Candidate — Hillary Clinton's second presidential campaign is only ten days old -- but she's already won over a surprising number of small-business owners. A new survey finds that 42 percent of entrepreneurs say that the best candidate for small business is actually Hillary Clinton. That statistic comes from Manta, which polled more than 1,000 small business owners online.

Bring Your Kids to Work, So They Can See You Argue — Thursday is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, and, should this year's be like others, around 37 million parents will bring their kids to work with them. When the Ms. Foundation for Women started Take Our Daughters to Work Day in 1993, the idea was to help boost girls' confidence and to link education to work opportunities.

Jessica Alba's Step-by-Step Guide To Overcoming Every Doubt About Her Startup — Jessica Alba has at least one thing in common with less-famous entrepreneurs--at the beginning, no one thought her idea for a company made any sense. Nor did they think that she, personally, could pull it off. Alba and one of her co-founders, CEO Brian Lee, spoke about these and other challenges at Inc's GrowCo conference in Nashville last week.

Meet the Robotics Engineer Who Wants to Disrupt Your Furniture — Plenty of entrepreneurs talk about disrupting an industry. Jessica Banks, founder of RockPaperRobot, is going to disrupt your furniture. Don't laugh. Banks, a polymath who double-majored in physics and creative writing, sees infinite possibilities in something as seemingly simple as a table. Now she's using her engineering background--and a round of seed funding--to make them a reality.

How This One Investor Plans to Improve Women's VC Odds — At a time when there's much discussion of the role of women in venture capital and in entrepreneurship, Anu Duggal is betting that things are going to change, fast. In fact, she's working to make it happen.

How to Get Early-Stage Funding With No Strings Attached — There are a few common ways to raise money for a startup: Sell a chunk of equity, and quite possibly give up some management control. Or take out a loan or other debt, much of which you could be stuck repaying even if your startup fails.

Ellen Pao and the Impossibility of Being Perfect — Ellen Pao has one problem that many working women can empathize with: She's not perfect. Of course, nobody is, male or female--but in the workplace, this seems to be much more of a problem for women, who see their personalities regularly judged and found lacking, even in largely-positive performance reviews.
