Ctenfordsky course CS183B: How to start a startup Was launched in 2012 under the leadership of Peter Thiel. In the autumn of 2014 was a new series of lectures by leading entrepreneurs and experts Y Combinator:
So, here you have watched several presentations and learned how to create a startup. You have assembled a team, you know how to look your product, it is in demand, and your company grows. People love to your project, you know how to get their attention. You figured out how to create a single and unique company, and you have no competitors in the market, and that's worth something. And the market for which you want to go, still little more than the market for paper airplanes, so that all you have is good. What now?
We are here to prove that culture, in fact - is a very important component in the development of the company, are just as important as a team. I hope that after our conversation, you will learn what is culture. Why is it important? How to form the core values? As well as learn about the components that form the core values and culture, which form a good, effective team, and get some practical experience in this area.
What is culture? Anybody want to define culture? What did you say? Simple values in the team? Nice try. You gave this definition, because you have at hand a computer and access to the Internet? You can find a couple of definitions in Webster's dictionary, but we are with you at Stanford. It's kind of a trick question. In the study of computer science is never simple questions.
