How to Build a Startup - Steve Blank (Udacity Course)

A few of us at the Coworking Space are enrolled to do this new free startup course with Udacity:

http://www.udacity.com/overview/Course/ep245/CourseRev/1

Our plan is to watch the weekly lecture together if possible (followed by a little discussion) and help each other out as we complete the assignment.

I haven't worked out a time for the weekly meeting yet, but have just put 8-9am on Jelly day in there for now as a placeholder (happy to change this). If you are interested, please enroll for the course at the link above and RSVP yes to this meetup. It's not mandatory to watch the lecture together if the time doesn't suit you, you can still be part of the group and share.

About Steve Blank:

Steve Blank is a seasoned Silicon Valley entrepreneur. Translation: he has failed and--more often--succeeded, in a 21-year career building 8 Valley startups, including several with major IPO's. Along the way, he's learned an incredible amount, and has spent the last decade sharing what he's learned with entrepreneurs all over the world. Author of two famous books on entrepreneurship, The Four Steps to the Epiphany, and--new this year--The Startup Owner's Manual, Steve teaches entrepreneurship at Udacity, Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia, and other major universities worldwide. He was named "Master of Innovation" by Harvard Business Review and is an advisor to many successful entrepreneurs. He is also an avid conservationist, contributing generously to preserve the California Coast.

    I've just watched some of the first lectures to get a feel for the course. It's looks excellent.

    Could I ask you all to go to the course and watch Lecture 0 on your own before we start:

    I am also going to print off a load of the business model templates on our A3 printer for us to use. Have plenty of post-its here too.

    I'll set up a google group for us after the first meeting.... for the moment we'll just stay on meetup.
