Paul Buchheit Says “Sell Before You Build”

by Larry Chiang on May 11, 2015

Larry Chiang wrote a 2009 sequel to three books his mentor wrote in the 80s. “What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School” is a sequel to his mentor’s, Mark McCormack’s book, What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School. What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School helped Chiang start a company as an engineering major in Illini Tower where he was encouraged to try doing sales as a CS major via ‘Pop Up Internships’. Duck9 helps students get a FICO credit card credit score over 750. Prior to the NY Fashion week book launch party, Chiang did a Harvard Law School keynote summarized by Harvard Business School,What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“. Yes, Harvard Law pokes at Harvard Business very often so Stanford Business is not off limits. “Lets win SXSW, this SXSW” is in Harbus right now.

“New York Fashion Week showcases product that is all in the prototype stage.”

A startup has some initial steps that are completely COUNTERINTUITIVE.

I want my articles to accelerate your startup team. So, I curate the best tips, strategies, techniques and ideas and sequence “signature business recipes” into ‘hashtags’. Inside the class “How to Start a Startup”, CS 183b, the word “actually” is followed by the piece of startup advice that’s counterintuitive.

YC advice not stressed at #CS183b

Paul Buchheit Says “Sell Before You Build”

More sell before you build advice: (it’s the lecture on “do things that do not scale (But Have Momentum) #dttdsBHM. I have curated these to be #dttdsBHM
Larry Chiang (@LarryChiang)
In short, #cs183b preaches @paulg‘s mantra, “Do things that don’t scale” #dttdsBHM. Pic = “Collison Brothers install”

Are u selling an app? You should probably google “Engr 145 hamster wheel backend” before you code it up


The concept of selling something is curated under #CS183b
