Have a big effect on the world

by oneafrikan on March 18, 2005

From Paul Graham. I started with “How to Start a Startup“, then went to “Summer Founders Program“, then mailed him curiously asking what it was all about.
This was his reply.

Our idea for a startup school has morphed into something more hands-on:


Now instead of just hearing talks about how to start a startup, you get money to actually start one. The talks are now going to be spread out over a series of dinners during the summer.

We can’t of course accept so many people into this new program as we could with the original idea, but we encourage you to apply. We’re prepared to accept younger founders and riskier ideas than anyone currently believes practical.

And since the deadline is approaching, we’d appreciate it if you could tell any friends who might be interested in doing something like this. If this new idea takes hold this year, we will make it an annual thing, and that could have quite a big effect on the world.

Thanks! –pg
