Kicking off the Product & Code cohort
In this week’s episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle/) walk through the initial curriculum doc (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mRGdU5JCOl96ywR6sSvAiae7W8sDxFhkih5mdqrGitM/edit# ) for the free Product and Code cohort I’m leading this quarter. I talk about how the cohort is setup, what we’ll be covering in terms of building Web2/2.5/3 products, writing code to bring things to life, how to get involved (https://discord.gg/95JRuPaTP8), and what to expect moving forward.
Why I’m doing this
After long reflections last month, I realized that:
- One of the best ways to help people is to teach them a valuable skill
- If my job is to invest in early stage entrepreneurs, then training them to build technical products is a good use of my time
- If I can help point someone in the right direction to learn from existing resources on the Internet - and if that person can start a company that I can invest in early - then it’s a win for everyone.
For those of you who don’t yet know what I do professionally, I’m one of the Managing Directors of Prota Ventures. Our purpose is to promote human flourishing by investing holistically in entrepreneurs. Part of this holistic investing involves teaching people the skills necessary to build technical products and startups, hence why I’ve spent time building this curriculum and cohort.
I’d love to see you in the Discord for this cohort if you’d like to join us. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great rest of your week!
