Startup School

 with  Sam Altman

We believe the barrier to entry for people to start a startup is still too high. We want to make it easier for people to start a company, regardless of who or where you are, so we're starting by sharing what we've learned, through Startup School.

Startup School is a free 10-week massively open online course (MOOC). The course will begin on April 5th, 2017.

For founders actively pursuing your own startup, we welcome you to participate in the course. You will have additional access to active founder-advisors who can help give you feedback on your company.

Alexander Gamanyuk is taking this course right now.
YC provides access to some great deals from Clerky, Stripe Atlas, Microsoft and Google to all the Startup School companies. Our https://botmakers.net/ team is in group 20. It’s just the beginning of the course but it looks promising.

Leonardo Barrientos completed this course and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Great start for founders who don't have a business background or are looking to get some insight about the startup ecosystem.

George Carter is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Just started but helpful so far. Maybe a little too much info and some modules overlap. Waiting for the 2018 version.
