What Entrepreneurs Learn By Lurking

Teaching Startup lets you eavesdrop on the answers other entrepreneurs are getting

Learning entrepreneurship in the classroom

I’m a hands-on learner, as are most entrepreneurs. I’ve never been a fan of classroom learning in general, but I understand why it’s important.

Learning entrepreneurship from books

I’ve also read a lot of books on business and startup and all the things that spin around those twin suns. A lot of those books are good reads, and sure, they contain valuable information.

Learning entrepreneurship from other entrepreneurs

Finally, I’m also a startup advisor. Companies that are profitable and/or well-funded pay me good money to help them get to the next level. And what I do for them is a night and day difference compared to the classrooms and the books.

Teaching Startup definitely took a couple attempts to get it right, and it went through several major pivots. And while those attempts were valiant, and well-received, they didn’t solve the problem the way I wanted it solved.
