The Founder Institute is giving you "Startup and Go" – a crash course on the initial steps to creating a meaningful and enduring technology company.
"Startup and Go" is a collection of talks from the very beginning of the Founder Institute’s startup accelerator program - which, in just 4.5 years, has launched over 1000 technology companies across 55 cities and 6 continents. Taught by some of the program’s highest-rated Mentors, this course helps you create a strong foundation for a technology startup – from a properly vetted and researched idea, to a strong initial team. We’ve also included some follow-on assignments to help you turn these lessons into immediate action. The goal? To help you come up with smart business ideas and provide you the basic business development training to finally create the business you’ve been dreaming of. Startup and Go build your dream company. This course includes three topics - Startup Ideation, Startup Research, and Startup Hiring, Firing & Co-Founders.
We all have many "great" ideas, but how do we best choose which one to pursue? What are the components of a good technology business idea? What is your key differentiator? What type of business will you build? How will you make money? Can you quickly articulate your idea?
Almost any entrepreneur can play with some numbers and say "our market is worth billions of dollars" – but what is your actual serviceable market? Is your target market big enough? And growing fast enough? Where can you find this information, and how should you interpret it?
Your dream company requires a dream team. But how can you find and convince great talent to take a chance on your idea? Who should you hire at the garage, seed, and funded stages? What types of management structure work best for tech startups? If you raise money, how will investors be involved?
So what are you waiting for? Startup and Go!

I learned so much from this course and I will recommend this course to all that I meet in my travels!
There are a lot of good speaker but sometimes it is nearly impossible to hear what they are saying and there are no sub-titles
A fantastic set of presentations from quality mentors. I'll definitely make use of the content garnered to make better judgment calls. I might have made a few iffy ones already but I guess it's still early days and the best is yet to come. 8/5 stars!!
A very comprehensive course on the crucial initial steps on how to start-up. Excellent course.
