We'll cover a range of early stage topics. We wanted to co-teach a class, because while we share similar startup philosophies, we've taken different approaches in getting there.
A few examples of that: Carbonmade has bootstrapped from the beginning, never pivoted, and uses a freemium model; whereas Yipit pivoted twice, didn't have a revenue model, but got traction and raised a Series A in 2010. Despite different approaches, both companies are successful and continue to grow at astounding paces. There are a number of factors that have made both of our companies successful in the early stages and we want to share those experiences with you.
The class format will include a short lecture followed by Q&A from the audience.
Note: This class is best attended by people just starting out or within the first year of running their company.
