Startup School 2018 – Curriculum

Two weeks ago we announced Startup School 2018. Our free, online course will kick off in just three weeks, on August 28th. We also let founders know that 100 of the companies that complete the course will receive $10,000 in equity-free funding from YC.
This year’s course will feature revamped software and all new material which will be added to the extraordinary library of startup content YC has collected over the past two years of Startup School and the many years of working with and writing about startups. This work is being collected at startupschool.org/library.

Introducing YC Series A Batches

We’re now ready to launch the next phase of the program: working with companies that are ready for a Series A in batches, just like regular YC.
