Are Startup Accelerators Worth It?

New Episode of Teaching Startup: The Show

1.16.17

New episode of Teaching Startup is airing today. Are Startup Accelerators Worth It? features a conversation between Andy, who just got into 500 Startups and has been through a local accelerator, and Colgan, who has already been through 500 Startups with this company.

Plus there are a couple good questions from Chop, a rant or two from me, and a few laughs.

I did a "cold open" with this episode, and Sean is stepping up his game with the animations, bringing in definitions.

Episode 1.2: That time we talked about giving up equity, diva attitude, and the dumbest thing Colgan ever saw.
