Starting, and building, a company is hard. It’s also a tremendous adventure.

We here at are lucky to hear stories about this adventure, its ups and its downs, every day. All this inspired us to create the Tomorrow Toolkit, an ebook we published in partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal.

Check it out

The 20,000-word, 20-chapter ebook shares lessons on starting and building a business — from creating an MVP to finding a cofounder to raising capital and beyond. The recently-updated edition features suggestions and words of wisdom from founders across the country. It also, however, features some of our very own D.C.-based talent.

For example:

  • Mykel Nahorniak, founder of events management startup Localist, shares how networking and attending community events can expose you to new resources and ideas
  • Laurin Hodge, executive director of Mission:Launch, talks about how to develop and hone your venture’s social mission
  • Joel Holland, founder of VideoBlocks, reminisces on the importance of validating your idea early on
  • Jay Marwaha, CEO of Syntasa, on finding and understanding your market
  • Zvi Band, founder and CEO of Contactually, gives tips on how to be both a founder and a CEO and, critically, transition between the two

There’s so much more where that comes from. Check it all out in the Tomorrow Toolkit!
