ELEKTRIK IS A STARTUP SCHOOL GRADUATE - MARCH 2020

I love school... I should rephrase that, I love learning. I hate homework and I hate exams. I also hate the high fees associated with College degrees. I graduated with an BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology from BYU, and then while working full time as an engineer for John Deere, I had the crazy idea to go to school to get my MBA at the University of Iowa. I thought I was done with school FOREVER...

Last November, while wasting time on LinkedIn, I ran into the STARTUP SCHOOL PROGRAM, from Y-Combinator in SF. It is an online program, FREE!!!, and the only hard commitment was a group session on Thursdays at 8PM... PERFECT!!!!



Without much expectation I signed up to do it. I figured, it wouldn't interfere with my full time job and it would help me grow. It is an 8 week program, and every week I faithfully I watched the videos, participated in the forum, and also in the group sessions. The experience has been transformational. I learned almost more about starting and launching a business through startup school than I did at my MBA program for which I paid thousands of $$$. AMAZING program and I fully recommend it to anyone looking to start a venture. One of the really cool aspects of the program is that you get to share your startup with other fellow entrepreneurs, and they get to share feedback and also advice. Below are some of the comments and feedback we received. It is really cool is that ELEKTRIK was chosen 6 TIMES as the startup fellow entrepreneurs would join. VERY COOL! people liked it!


Below are some of my favorite videos, and some of my biggest takeaways.

AVODOCS - Great site for doing contracts and legal paper work many startups do in the launch phase.
