I love startups. Not only do they bring the promise of rapid growth and real change, but everything is up for grabs. Organizations that start with a clean sheet of paper have the difficult task of paying the bills, but they also have the luxury of ignoring yesterday in order to focus exclusively on tomorrow.
Through the years, I've started a bunch of companies and enjoyed brainstorming with the people who have launched companies big and small, from AOL when they only had a dozen employees to some of the very cool organizations that come through the doors of NY Techstars.
Next month, I'm going to be running a small school–a few days for a few dozen startup founders. You can find details and tickets right here.
If you know someone who might benefit from this, I hope you'll tell them about it.
For those that won't be able to make it, I'll be recording the session and editing it down into something I can share here on the blog for free a few months later.
Coming up: a larger, less expensive session over a weekend this fall (for all sorts of organizations) as well as a no-cost session for non-profit leaders later in the year. Watch this blog for updates. Thanks.
PS coincidentally just saw this new school for coders.
