Overview

From Andrew Warner:

I first interviewed Paul Graham after I heard something shocking from Alexis Ohanian, a founder whose company was funded by Graham's Y Combinator. Alexis came to Mixergy to tell the story of how he launched and sold Reddit.

If you're a founder, you know the kind of problems that founders have, right? Figuring out what product to create, how to build it, how to get users to try it, etc.

Well Alexis didn't seem to have those problems, or at least they weren't as challenging for him as they were for most of the other 600 entrepreneurs I interviewed on Mixergy.

Why? Because Paul Graham helped him launch his business.

How did Graham make Reddit's launch easier and more successful than other companies' founding? How did he do the same for hundreds of other startups? And, more importantly, what can you learn from his experiences to grow your business?

The book you're holding has those answers.

Use what you're about to learn to build your successful startup. After you do, I hope you'll let me interview you so other founders can learn from your experience, the way you're about to benefit from Graham's.

About Paul Graham

Paul Graham is a programmer, essayist and investor.

He's known for co-founding Viaweb, which was acquired by Yahoo in 1999. Harvard Computer Society asked him to give a talk, so he shared his Viaweb experiences in the startup world, which led to an essay and another company.

Graham's essays are on whatever he thinks about, though most of them are about startup life. These essays include everything from The Trouble With The Segway to How To Be An Angel Investor, and they've been published in Hackers & Painters.

With the same partners from Viaweb and Jessica Livingston, he started Y Combinator in 2005. They brought in a whole new model of angel investing - funding startups in batches. Graham has now guided 172 startups through their beginning stages, started the Hacker News community and is known for his uncanny ability to generate successful startup ideas.

Graham has seen all sides of the startup world. Here's his advice.
