Today I want to share with you my resources that I use to learn and keep myself up to date about the startup scene.

  • Video course: How to build a Startup by Steve Blank – my personal favorite (thanks to Vidar Andersen) A very good course for understanding customer development. You should really take this course to get your mind into the startup mood! 5 Star material!

  • Podcast: SmartPassiveIncome.com – How to earn $60k a month as a single person doing business online? Income reports, podcasts, guests telling the stories of their startups, tons of advice and a free ebook how to write an ebook… Very informative!

  • Podcast: Startups for the Rest of us – Rob and Mike answering questions dealing with how to make money online. They give advice on marketing, selling of digital good or Saas (software as a service) goods etc. A real gem are their „checklists“ for founders with hints to a lot of topics.

  • Podcast: Mixergy – Interviews with founders „who did it“! Groupon, AppSumo, 37Signals, digg, yCombinator, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, Kiva are just some popular examples. The host Andrew Warner asks the founders bluntly numbers, how-tos, problems etc. Very interesting because of the true stories. For some interviews or features you need a paid premium account.

  • Podcast: Stanford University Podcasts – Over 2000 videos and podcasts from very well known founders as Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page or Michael Dell to name a few. Huge choice.
