Startup Codex

In a short video from Y Combinator, CEO Michael Siebel shares some advice in the form of critical mistakes to avoid.

The topics are relatively well known, but Siebel puts them in perspective with all the strength of the YC collective experience.

Seven minutes well invested for first time founders.

We operate a platform called Bookface for YC founders to connect with each other, ask questions, find intros, and share advice. Recently on Bookface Zach Dixon, cofounder of the gaming company Players' Lounge (W18), asked a great question: 1. What are some things that you should've known as a first-time founder but did not? 2. How did you learn them? 3. How did they help? There were so many useful answers that we're going to share them here.
