General Assembly is the host of several educational videos targeting new entrepreneurs. 

"Classes" include:

•Making something people love
•Building your team
•Turning user insight into product
•Modeling your business
•Forming the right kind of entity
•Raising your first million

Oh, by the way, linking inspirations together, will also give you extra DQ points :).
