Business Rockstars (BR) is currently the largest producer of live, daily, audio and video content targeted to entrepreneurs. Wantrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs learn to make good decisions early, when to pivot, how to build the right team, and how and when to raise capital. BR provides efficient resources through a variety of mediums: a 2 hour live radio and streaming video program, podcasts, blogs, social media, and soon a new mobile app. These are all mediums that capitalize on strong trends such as exploding mobile app usage (growing at 115% in 2013 alone) accelerated video viewing over text (over 200%/year in the last three years).

BR has a powerful advantage with its uniquely talented management team, and investors, and advisors who are all laser focused on building Business Rockstars into the leading content platform for Entrepreneurs across Mobile, Social and Broadcast.
