This is the first of our #FF posts. Stop by every Friday to discover noteworthy personalities in media.
This Friday, our #FollowFriday recommendation is Sarah Lacy, a TechCrunch maven and author, always in search of new and hot entrepreneurs.
If you want to keep an eye on new entrepreneurs, cool tech companies on the rise, or simply about business in general, you will most likely hear it from Sarah Lacy.
Sarah is a senior editor at TechCrunch and her approach to covering entrepreneurship is smart and easy to digest. When I read Sarah’s posts, creative juices start to run because they always make me think about business in various angles.
Do check out her “Ask a VC” on TechCrunchTV too. It’s a must for anyone who wants to see what makes every investor tick.
Brilliant. Crazy. Cocky.
Recently, Sarah published a book entitled “Brilliant. Crazy. Cocky. How the Top 1% of Entrepreneurs Profit from Global Chaos”. I’m almost done reading it and I’m loving it.

Thinks: About work 24/7
Reveals: I had a weird dream where George Clooney was helping me poison Hitler last night
Dream Coffee Date: Pony Ma (CEO of Tencent, the third largest internet company in the world), Larry Ellison, Margaret Atwood or Paul Kagame (president of Rwanda). A weird range I know…
