CS 183 is the anchor franchise of startup-ie classes at Stanford. Obvi Peter taught it in 2012 and Sam taught it in 2014

I’m all about translating what VCs say. Yup, they’re both VCs. Listening to a VC about how to start a startup is a lot like listening to women in how to date women. Men who date women well should mentor us on how to date women. In short, VCs want us as their code-monkeys. In short, VCs want us to be the company building monkey.

I think CS majors should learn how to be a VC and not be the code monkey. Remember, I’m the guy who engineered how to start a startup without an MBA/ biz dev douche (2009, WTDTYASBS 09-09-09 at NYC fashion week.
Call to action: CS 183vc is about doing the douchiest of tasks. It’s a CS class for CS majors that will do zero CS work. All douchie VC tasks!
This class doesn’t exist, so don’t talk about it
