How to Start a Startup - Sam Altman (Y Combinator)



I have spent the last few weeks following this series based on a class at Stanford. The course is delivered by Sam Altman (Y Combinator) and features a number of executors with great experience such as Peter Thiel (Paypal/Palantir), Brian Chesky (AirBnB) and Marc Andreessen (Netscape)

The series covers topics such as: 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 and business strategy.
