As we announced, Tech Cocktail is writing a book about starting up! We are going to be working hard the next few months to write the book, but we need your help. The book is due out spring 2014 and will be published by Wiley as a how-to guide for starting up, along with inspiring stories from entrepreneurs around the world. We’ll be reaching out weekly with a chance to share your story and be included in the book. So if you have a story, we’d love to hear it! Below are the fifth set of questions for you, due Sunday night, November 24. If you have any questions, email Kira Newman from the Tech Cocktail team (firstname.lastname@example.org).
