Y-combinator’s Startup School’s Under-Promotes Success via Side Projects aka Moonlighting

by Larry Chiang on October 11, 2014

By Larry Chiang 

I Motivationally Listen(no TM.) from the front sitting “First Chair Entrepreneurship”(no TM). CS 183B, Startup School and De Anza Community College do not stress “side projects”
Here is why you should do what I taught at MIT, “Engineering Entrepreneurship Education for Engineers who may never be founders (unless the situation is perfect)”
Startup School (@startupschool)
Groupon started as a side project while @andrewmason was working on The Point & became the fastest growing company in history #startupschool

Pay attention to…

Bess Ho (@Bess)
I met @jack when he was attending his first Startup School @Stanford Twitter was still side project. I get my first twitter acct after that

My friend Poornima has a book.

“side project” is #Chap2 of @femgineer‘s book.
DJ ing #StartUpSchool w Duke U.

Mark Cuban loves it too!
