4 Ways To Take This Class - How to Build a Startup

  • 0:00 - 0:02
    So welcome to the Lean Launchpad class.
  • 0:02 - 0:05
    If you're interested in the logistics on how to take this class,
  • 0:05 - 0:09
    this lecture zero will describe it. But if you want to just get started,
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    click on lecture one. So the good news is there's actually
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    four ways to watch these lectures:
  • 0:14 - 0:18
    So a good way is to kind of watch them and use the Udacity
  • 0:18 - 0:22
    discussion forums to interact with other people watching these lectures.
  • 0:22 - 0:25
    Something that's better is, these lectures are free and
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    they don't really require any books or text.
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    But there are books or texts, and I would feel a little guilty
  • 0:31 - 0:34
    not telling you that Alexander Osterwalder's "Business Model Generation"
  • 0:34 - 0:38
    book is kind of the standard for understanding the business model canvas,
  • 0:38 - 0:41
    and The Startup Owner's Manual, written by yours truly
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    and my co-author, Bob Dorf, is kind of the standard for customer development.
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    But let me emphasize again, these are not required,
  • 0:47 - 0:50
    and you could understand the lectures just fine without them.
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    But they certainly help explain a lot of the detail in the
  • 0:53 - 0:58
    617 pages, because it's almost an encyclopedia for startups.
  • 0:58 - 1:00
    Enough of the ad--that's the last time I'll mention buying
  • 1:00 - 1:04
    the texts or books. Almost best is to actually watch these
  • 1:04 - 1:07
    lectures, but this time form a startup team and actually
  • 1:07 - 1:11
    think about--instead of just sitting in your office or on your
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    computer--actually be watching these as you start your company.
  • 1:14 - 1:17
    Now, the best way to actually watch these lectures
  • 1:17 - 1:20
    is with facilitators and coaches and mentors.
  • 1:20 - 1:24
    and the way you can do that is by physically taking the
  • 1:24 - 1:27
    class with Startup Weekend Next. If you go to the website,
  • 1:27 - 1:32
    swnext.org, you could find out how to sign up in your city
  • 1:32 - 1:36
    and town, and participate as a team, with groups of other teams
  • 1:36 - 1:38
    physically, week to week.
  • 1:38 - 1:41
    and one of the reasons we kind of suggest that you,
  • 1:41 - 1:44
    instead of just watching the lectures, actually get out of
  • 1:44 - 1:48
    the building and do it--either by yourself or with your team,
  • 1:48 - 1:52
    or with Startup Weekend--is startups are not about lectures.
  • 1:52 - 1:55
    And entrepreneurship is not about your grades,
  • 1:55 - 1:59
    and this class is about the work you do outside the building
  • 1:59 - 2:04
    after you watch the lectures, not how much of the lectures you watch.
  • 2:04 - 2:08
    Entrepreneurship is experiential, it's hands-on,
  • 2:08 - 2:11
    and it's immediate and intense feedback.
