How to Start a Startup, free online course from Stanford


#1

"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.”

I took notes on the classes (http://personalopz.com/blog/category/notes/how-to-start-a-startup/). There is a lot of actionable advice there as opposed to the more inspirational classes (Stanford’s Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders). Love them all.

The class that stood out to me the most was class 18 (Legal and Accounting Basics for Startups). Should be a must watch for anybody about to start a business of any type.
