Are You a Doer?

One of the fun things I get to do is work with University of Chicago students. UChicago has had a cultural change in the past several years.  Sure, there are still the geeks that go there that want to do research.  They are on the PhD track, and want to become university professors.

On the flip side are the doers.  They went to Chicago specifically because the culture has become a lot more entrepreneurial.  Entrepreneurship has infected almost all the schools, undergraduate and graduate.

I met Diana Zink in her first weeks as a new MBA student.  She grew up in Bulgaria, and made her way to the US. She worked for the NBA, for CNN and had an idea.  She went to Chicago Booth to pursue that idea and learn the academic building blocks of business.

Yesterday, she released the public version of DoerHub.  It’s a website to attract teammates, get feedback, get access to resources and tackle ideas together.  It’s a way to power the doer within.  You can find likeminded people with complimentary skills.

Face it, it’s hard to build a startup.  With DoerHub, you can give luck a better chance of happening.
