Y Combinator has put up an online Startup School.
You may sign up for a spot in the 10-week massive open online course starting today. It’s free. (Disclosure: Tech in Asia is a part of the YC Winter 2015 batch. Please see our ethics page for details.)
The course will include lectures from top entrepreneurs like WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum, Stripe CEO Patrick Collison, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman, Quora CEO Adam D’Angelo, Facebook’s VP for growth Alex Schultz, and YC’s own partners. The lectures – covering topics such as getting startup ideas, building a product, building a culture, and raising money – will be recorded from Stanford University.
“Our goal is to replicate much of the YC experience,” says the US-based accelerator’s president Sam Altman in a blog post.
A Startup Founder track, a weekly online advice session, will be made available to a limited number of people “depending on demand and our resources.” The track will run like group office hours at YC, with its alumni giving feedback on your startup.
You can also communicate with your classmates throughout the course via Slack and email.
At the end of it, you’ll have a chance to share with you’ve built with a wide audience – much like a demo day.
“We want to teach everyone how to start a startup and help them along the way with guidance from people who’ve started companies,” notes Sam.
You can register for the course here.
