Everything we know about how to start a startup, for free, from some of the world experts.
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.
At Get Started I will be organizing sessions in October in London to watch the lecture videos. We’ll brainstorm ideas, bounce them off each other, and refine them over the course of the semester.
Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind opportunity!
Videos of the lectures, associated reading materials, and assignments will all be available here
There will be 20 videos, some with a speaker or two and some with a small panel. It’ll be 1,000 minutes of content if you watch it all.

Y-Combinator have tried to take some of the best speakers from the past 9 years of Y Combinator dinners and arrange them in a way that will hopefully make sense.
They believe helping a lot of people be better at starting companies will be good for everyone. It will hopefully be valuable even for people who don’t want to start startups.
Talks like these have really helped Y Combinator founders create their companies. We hope you find it helpful too!
