How to Start a Startup

An exemplary business course from Stanford University, I have been following this course very closely over the past few months. If you want to get some excellent lectures on how to create a startup, presenting the best speakers from the past 9 years of Y-Combinator events, this free course is for you. 

We cover how to come up with ideas and evaluate them, how to get users and grow, how to do sales and marketing, how to hire, how to raise money, company culture, operations and management, business strategy, and more.

Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator, and Dustin Moskovitz, Cofounder of Facebook, Asana, and Good Ventures, kick off the How to Start a Startup Course. Sam's topic is "Ideas, Products, Teams and Execution, Part I" and Dustin's is "Why to Start a Startup".
