I think the best way to level up your education as an entrepreneur is by doing. Either starting your own company or working at an early stage one. I think the value in having a degree in something, especially if you plan to work for yourself, is questionable. That said, I’m a big believer in continuing to invest in your education.
I’ve compiled a list of resources that I’ve found helping to rounding out my own education as an entrepreneur. I’ll keep adding to it over time. Never stop learning!
- Blitzscaling (CS183C @ Stanford) – Led by Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn and former PayPal leader. The course is totally free and features interviews from top Silicon Valley leaders like Eric Schmidt, Marissa Mayer, Brian Chesky, Jeff Weiner, Diane Greene, and more. See class notes and videos.
