Startup Lessons From Peter Thiel

If you are an entrepreneur, deal with startups, or have seen the movie The Social Network then you’ve probably at least heard of Peter Thiel.  He was one of the founders of PayPal, the first outside investor in Facebook, and has made countless other investments through the various funds he manages (Founders Fund, Clarium, Mithril, etc.).  In short, the man is not some one trick pony that got lucky a couple of times.  His advice is valuable; when he speaks you should listen – especially if you’re involved with startups.

Last year he taught a startup class at Stanford.  As you might imagine it was incredibly popular and hard to get into.  Fortunately for those of us that were unable to attend, one of the more diligent students not only took incredibly robust class notes but decided to share them with the world through his blog http://blakemasters.com/.

You can check out his notes here: Peter Thiel’s CS183: Startup Class Notes.

Thank you Blake, thank you PT.  A few notable quotes highlighted on Pinterest of all places are below:
