How to Start a Startup

by Stanford

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Everything we know about how to start a startup, for free, from some of the world experts.

This collection is designed to be a sort of one-class business course for people who want to start startups.

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.

You can’t teach everything necessary to succeed in starting a company, but I suspect we can teach a surprising amount. We’ve 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.

We’re doing this because we 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!


Note: the videos are in a slightly different order from how they were given at Stanford, for cohesiveness. In addition, some readings can only be viewed in iTunes U if you are using the iOS  app. You can alternatively check the course website to follow along with the associated readings:

Short but powerful

Great lessons & tips from every aspect of starting up. From small businesses to monopolies.
The only thing I had trouble with is that some aren't great at presenting so they had trouble with the short timeline and you feel like you missed out! Great altogether though
