Startup: What I'd do the same, and what I'd never do again.

from Center61

Startup
Description

A whole bunch of 'advice' (take it or leave it) on my experience launching our business/product/service - the web-app HourSchool. (www.hourschool.com)

From contracts to working with contractors, lawyers, taxes, insurance, launching product, networking in Austin, working together as a team - managing freelance, and freelancers, jobs and life.

essentially I would like to cover a bunch of topics and talk about what I'd do the same and what I'd do differently if I had just finished AC4D or just decided to start my own company.

Class will start at 3pm, and will be roughly one to two hours. Center 61 is a co-working space, and you are welcome to work there free of charge for the full day any day that you register for a class! Meet people, drink coffee, get some work done and learn a little something!

Cheers,
Alex.

I attended AC4D in the first class, 2010, and have been working on my startup HourSchool ever since. I like to make thoughtful things and ride anything with 2 wheels.

I am a mechanical engineer working in San Marcos/Austin, TX. I've been studying design topics for the better part of a year. I'm interested in exploring a variety of ideas. Lately I've been obsessed with manufacturing and design process as well as materials. I've been studying a variety of different topics like generative design and biomimicry. Some skills that I'm learning/working on are Processing, Rhino, Grasshopper, sketching, prototyping methodology

An impressive share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was simply doing little analysis on this. And then he the fact is bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him.. smile. So permit me to reword that: Thnx for any treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending plenty of time to talk about this, I am strongly regarding this and enjoy reading more about this topic. If it is possible, as you grow expertise, can you mind updating your blog site with a lot more details? It is actually extremely a good choice for me.

Excellent read, I recently passed this onto a colleague who has been performing a little research on that. And the man actually bought me lunch because I came across it for him smile So allow me to rephrase that: Appreciate your lunch! Open WordPress SEO Plugin
