Online lectures: General Assembly

This is the first part in a series about my experience with online education. Some months earlier I wrote about taking a couple of online classes. This first part is about General Assembly.

The Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship online course is just awesome. Really. It beats reading articles on HN hands down. It’s the best advice on “how to build a company” I came across. The tutors are experienced and give great advice. Lecures are clear, concise and to the point. Even if you already have started a company, sign up for the coures. You’ll find a lot of valuable info about how to make it even better.

My favorite lecture was on building communities and delighting your customers by Alexis Ohanian. I find this topic very interesting and often overlooked. There’s not much information about it on the web and what Alexis shares is of the highest quality. It almost feels like he’s letting you in on some kind of well-kept secret. Alexis recently published a book on this topic, I highly encourage you to buy it.

If you’re not based in the US, you can skip the class on how to incorporate, but otherwise, I highly encourage you to sign up and go through the other lectures.

The downside is that after finishing, you’ll want more. This stuff is so good it’s adictive. If you’re living in NY, you’re lucky. GA offers a lot more in their space. Some classes are live-streamed, but not all of them. For the rest, you’ll just have to move there.

Any tips on acquiring visa?
