We 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.
Jason Lemkin, of SaaStr, sits down with Solomon Hykes, CEO and co-founder of Docker, Tracy Young, CEO and co-founder of Plangrid, and Harry Zhang, co-founder of Lob, to discuss their experience building products in our third installment of How to Build a Product.
In the first of four lectures on How to Build a Product, Michael Seibel, CEO of Y Combinator, interviews Steve Huffman and Emmett Shear on how they built their products as founder-CEO's of Reddit and Twitch, respectively.
Yuri Sagalov, CEO of Amium, and Sam Altman hold Live Office Hours with three startups: MoonlightWork, Canny and Tuml. They'll discuss their ideas and their thought processes around building their companies.
