Free MOOC Startup School Online Course by Y CombinatorWe believe the barrier to entry for people to start a startup is still too high. We want to make it easier for people to start a company, regardless of who or where you are, so we're starting by sharing what we've learned, through Startup School.
Startup School is a free 10-week massively open online course (MOOC). The course will begin on April 5th, 2017. Lectures will be posted here weekly.
About Upcoming Y Combinator's Startup School MOOC
- We’ll have guest speakers covering a wide variety of topics—how to get ideas, how to build a great product, how to grow, how to build a culture, how to raise money, and more. 30-40% of these will be recorded advice sessions with startups—we’ve always heard from entrepreneurs that this is some of our most helpful content. These lectures will be recorded at Stanford University. Some of the guest lecturers include: Alan Kay, Jan Koum (WhatsApp), Patrick Collison (Stripe), Steve Huffman (Reddit), Adam D’Angelo (Quora), Alex Schultz (Facebook), Tracy Young (PlanGrid), Jason Lemkin (SaaStr), Harry Zhang (Lob), Dalton Caldwell (YC), Emmett Shear (Twitch), Michael Seibel (YC), Kirsty Nathoo (YC), Vinod Khosla (Khosla Ventures), Ali Rowghani (YC), Jess Lee (Sequoia), Aaron Harris (YC).
- For a limited group in a special Startup Founder track, we’ll have weekly online advice sessions where you can get feedback on your startup. The advisors are mostly YC alumni, like Daniel Kan (Cruise), Sanjay Dastoor (Boosted Boards), and Cindy Wu (Experiment). We’ll run these like we run group office hours at YC, and may be limited depending on demand and our resources.
- We’ll have an online community via Slack and email where you can connect with other entrepreneurs in the class.
- At the end of the class, participants will have a chance to share what they’ve built with a wide audience.
