TwitterBugg.comTwitter backgrounds are a common currency nowadays, and that is entirely obvious if we take into account that the San Francisco giant still retains pole position after all this time. It is only natural that something so popular would elicit so much interest as to have fans concerned about personalizing every aspect of it.

And when it comes to customizing the background image of any profile, this resource is a valid one.

It was created by a folk named Jonathan who decided to try and come up with some designs that strayed from the generic ones that have been predominant on social sites as a whole. These designs are all available for free, and I have to admit they have a sparkle of their own.

In addition to that, the site will eventually feature Twitter news and miscellanea like plugins and icons. In that sense, it hopes to become something of a port of call for Twitterers far and wide. Time will tell if it achieves that distinction or not. For now, you can see the site as it currently stands at and start forming your own opinion.

More – A Laboratory For New Entrepreneurs

  • July 2, 2009

StartupWiz.bizStartupWiz introduces a new program of its own which prepares entrepreneurs and business owners to achieve a much greater level and probability of success. The program’s series of 14 sequential modules goes well beyond the traditional MBA courses and startup ‘boot-camps’ available.

It takes the student from “Am I really prepared to be an entrepreneur?” to “I’m ready to pitch my compelling business case to sophisticated investors or bankers”. Each module includes a downloadable offline training presentation and keyed workbook for the topic, followed by a fast-paced interactive “WebShop” online to explore and test their ideas. Students learn at their own pace and from the comfort of their homes, enabling family members and friends to participate in the entrepreneurial process with them. They can even postpone their next module until they’ve done more ground work, and then pick up where they left off.

The program begins with students exploring their underlying motivations and expectations of the startup process and their desired outcome. Next they examine the entire set of success criteria for doing business in today’s tough economy. Students then build a comprehensive and compelling business model. Under the guidance of seasoned entrepreneurs students are continuously challenged to think critically about their plans and assumptions throughout the process. Those who complete the program get the opportunity to present their tested plan online to qualified investors world-wide. Students come away with a test presentation, executive summary, a ‘PlayBook’ covering their whole business case, and a much stronger confidence in the viability of their business model and their ability to execute it.

“You wouldn’t start laying bricks or putting up framing for a custom home before you architected it, so why build your business before you design it?” said Rudi Wiedemann, founder and CEO of StartupWiz. “Thinking at a strategic level about your new business model before you bet your job and savings on it is the smart move. Unfortunately, this is difficult work and few entrepreneurs have the patience to do it. But the savings in time, money, grief and reputation can be enormous.”

Investors looking for a source of better quality fundable deals will appreciate business models and management teams that have been ‘shaken out’ more thoroughly before approaching them for money. Experienced business executives have a new avenue to participate in hot new startups. Professional service providers can contribute to startups and potentially gain new clients. Business educators have a new place to send those graduates ready to take the entrepreneurial plunge.

Registration to StartupWiz is free and provides members valuable resources including PodCasts, downloads, links, templates and other tools which are constantly being updated and expanded.
