Stanford’s “How to Start a Startup”, will start tomorrow. Be sure to find where in your city a location will be to view all the material. You can even contact the leader of your city, if a location is not provided, so you can find out where you can go to view everything. If your city does not have a location or site then sign up to become a leader to host the program in your area. You can find that information on the course website at the bottom.
Just a few things to point out though, joining this class does not count as Stanford credit nor will you be able to obtain credit for it. The president of Y Combinator will be teaching the program along with many famous business leaders who will be guest speakers throughout the semester.
Even though you will be able to view all the material online from the course website it would be to your benefit to join a viewing session because it will also act as a discussion group. This will give people a chance to ask questions, bounce business ideas off one another, and network.
If you live in Austin, TX then our location will be at Laura’s Library (9411 Bee Caves) every Monday and Wednesday from 2 – 4 pm and will end on Dec 8th. We will host a discussion group after the lectures. Make sure to check the syllabus as there are project due dates for the course. Please remember to treat this as if you were paying for the course in order to get the most out of it.
