Peter Thiel, Marc Andressen, Marissa Meyer and other silicon valey icons will teach in class at Stanford. It will be part of a semester long course How to Start a Startup course at Standford which will be headed by Sam Altman, Y Combinator CEO . This could possibly be the most expensive course by the accumulation of its teacher’s net worth. What makes it even better for a non-stanford population like us, all the course will be available online in Youtube.

This idea should be spread to our universities here in Indonesia starting from their own alumni. Im sure were not lacking of successful people who wants go give back to their almamater.  Using the same model, one lecture can be filled by 10-15 people. Each will only teach one class in a semester for 2 – 3 hour. Quite feasible to accommodate even the busiest speaker.

This is great yet simple idea which can do wonder to further bridge our industry with academia.
