5 of the Best Videos for Startup Founders

Y Combinator | How to Start a Startup Free Lectures

We live in insane times.

At no time in the history of the world has a tech startup had access to 3 billion potential customers on day one.

The mobile platforms: Android and iOS, and the social platforms: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, have expanded the potential reachability of startups to 3 billion people.

The opportunity is endless and the cost of starting is very low.

I wanted to include a list of the top 5 video channels that are worth watching for a startup founding team.

Here’s a description from their page:

“YC doesn’t end on Demo Day. We and the YC alumni network continue to help founders for the life of their company, and beyond.

Twice a year we invest a small amount of money ($120k) in a large number of startups (recently 105).

The startups move to Silicon Valley for 3 months, during which we work intensively with them to get the company into the best possible shape and refine their pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present their companies to a carefully selected, invite-only audience.”

This is the channel description:

We’ll democratize investing so that everyone has access to high-growth startups, not just the wealthy and well-connected. We’ll also fund more legitimate businesses, from tech startups to local coffee shops.

We aim to turbo-charge GDP growth and decrease disparity of wealth. We give everyone the opportunity to invest as little as $100 in startups. We’ve funded 75+ startups with over $10 million from accredited investors. And now we’re working to participate in the JOBS Act, so anyone — no matter how wealthy — can invest. We’ve been preparing for that day since 2012, when we were invited by President Obama to watch the JOBS Act signed into law.
