Y Combinator - How to Start A Startup Course - Lecture 1

  • Carey Business School 100 International Dr Baltimore, MD, 21202 United States

Sam Altman, President of Y Combinator, will be teaching a class at Stanford this fall on How to Start a Startup. Along with guest lecturers like Marissa Mayer, Peter Thiel, and Ben Horowitz, he will be covering the fundamentals: 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.

Johns Hopkins Innovation Factory will be organizing sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:15-2:30 to watch the lecture videos. We’ll brainstorm ideas, bounce them off each other, and refine them over the course of the semester. Feel free to join for the entire session, or just the parts your course schedule allows.

Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind opportunity!
