Startup Academy

Filed under: Startup Philosophy — davidchungpark @ 7:31 AM

I wonder if it’s possible to have a Google Ventures like infrastructure but at a university. By infrastructure, I mean the incredible support (and enabling) people they have around their portfolio companies, such as web designers, UX/UI and data viz designers, engineers, statisticians, accountants, lawyers (or soon to be), marketers, product managers, project managers, etc. Obviously, they wouldn’t be on the GV level, but we have those elements in place at universities, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This would be an opportunity for everyone to get tons of experience, and maybe incubate something magical. The one thing I think new entrepreneurs don’t appreciate enough in their first venture is the long leap, and the number of diverse help you need, to go from product to company. Who knows if we can get enough hits, then maybe we can start hiring a full-time staff to support these entrepreneurs.
