How to Scale Your Startup

What happens when Reid Hoffman, Allen Blue, Chris Yeh and John Lilly get together to teach how to scale your startup? A new class at Stanford called Blitzcaling.

The sessions were made available to the public so everyone can benefit. You can watch the classes via Youtube, listen during your commute on SoundCloud and check out class notes as well.

Check out this Medium post by John Lilly with the links to all resources: https://medium.com/greylock-perspectives/now-playing-blitzscaling-9c7b333cc379#.dqkymkwfz

Regardless of which growth stage your startup is in, the interviews and discussions with founders that have done it before is a great source of inspiration. Enjoy!
