Lecture 3 – Paul Graham (Before the Startup)

Paul Graham discusses about building a great team & interacting with people whom you would like to work with. What you need to succeed in a startup in not an expertise in startup. It is bit weird and distasteful, but this lecture tells you that you need expert on your users, and customers’ behaviors.

He discusses the startup fundraising process, and shows an example through Facebook. He says” Build something that People Want” is so essential. This is fundamentally one thing that makes your business fail or succeed. More importantly, he entails the emotions of college students starting a startup, and how it is inevitably build up in our high school extracurricular activities. Throughout the lecture, he provides what is real about startup and how certain things are bullshit – including growth hacking.
