Startup School 2019 has begun! Today we basically just got the orientation video (which is not private, so I can embed it):
They tend to make all the lectures public on YouTube, so I should be able to embed them all as they are released! And there’s still time to register, as they mention in the video. Looks like the meetup for the DC area is on August 14th! (Or the 24th? Website and video don’t agree.) I hope to make it there.
They mention that the weekly updates should include some measurable metric. Since I haven’t launched yet, I suppose my metric will be “weeks until launch”, which I am nervous to estimate because things always take longer than you think they will. However, here is my initial estimate:
To do list:
- Set up home page to tease potential users, collect emails (today)
- Get algorithms and GUI to a usable state (4 weeks)
- Create user log-in system paired with payment system & user forum / guides (2 weeks)
- Incorporate the company (1 day) and launch!
So six weeks until launch! Good luck to me. (No promises, obviously.)
One of my initial concerns is: should I limit growth to make sure the service can scale? I guess it’s too early to worry about that though.
