Lecture 3, Project 1, Project Submission Details

Paul Graham just delivered an awesome lecture on Counterintuitive Parts of Startups, and How to Have Ideas.

Project 1 has been posted to the course webpage. We have set up a subreddit for project submission. You can start submitting project 0 (and even project 1), and you are encouraged to give feedback to other students. Please read the rules on the subreddit before submitting!

For your convenience, I have consolidated all resources/links related to the class in one place:

Have a wonderful week!

Let’s get started!

Howdy! We’re super excited for the first lecture of How to Start a Startup (and to have 50,000 of you following along), and I hope you are too. Sam will be starting things off tomorrow, and Dustin Moskovitz (cofounder of Facebook, Asana, and Good Ventures) will cover Why to Start a Startup.

Dustin and Sam will each answer a couple of questions in Q&A this week. You can submit questions on this form (by this evening for Dustin, by Wednesday for Sam). Top questions will selected to be voted on by members of the Facebook group (tonight for Dustin, on Wednesday for Sam).

400 universities around the world, as well as many non-university organizations, are organizing viewing sessions to bring people together, watch the lecture videos, discuss the content, bounce ideas off each other, and peer evaluate assignments. Contact info for university Leaders and other organizers, as well as viewing session details, are on this spreadsheet. If you’re organizing a viewing session that isn’t on that sheet, please add it!

You don’t have to go to a viewing session to watch the 50-minute videos – all will be posted on by 4 PM Pacific Time (no live stream) every day.

There are two recommended readings before watching the lecture tomorrow: Advice for Ambitious 19 year olds by Sam Altman, and Good and Bad Reasons to Become an Entrepreneur by Dustin Moskovitz.

You’ll get an email tomorrow as soon as the first video is online. That will include a link to the discussion forum we’ll be using specifically to discuss the contents of the lectures.

Have a great Monday!
