Announcing Startup School 2018
Announcing Startup School 2018 https://ift.tt/2LjtE36

We’re hosting Startup School again this year. Startup School is a free, 10-week, online course. It’s designed for any startup founder who would like to get help through the earliest, most difficult challenges of starting a company. The course will begin on August 27, 2018 and applications are now open at StartupSchool.org.

For the first time ever we are going to give $10,000 in equity-free funding to 100 of the most promising companies that join and complete the course. Those companies will also receive a video interview with a YC partner later in the year for advice or aid in applying to a future YC batch.

Stripe will be giving startups discounted payment processing and an invitation to Stripe Atlas to incorporate and open a company bank account.

In addition, startups will receive over $50,000 in credits to a variety of other services, including Digital Ocean and Amazon Web Services.

Startup School is designed for any startup founder who would like to get help through the earliest, most difficult challenges of starting a company. Founders may choose to join the Startup School community and meet with an advisor on a weekly basis, or to simply follow along with the course by watching the lectures and materials. In both cases, the class is completely free.

Startup School lectures will be delivered live in Mountain View, California at Y Combinator’s headquarters and then made available for viewing online. The speakers will include YC co-founder Paul Graham, YC Partners like President Sam Altman and CEO Michael Seibel, as well as notable founders from the startup community.

Last year, over 13,000 companies applied to participate in Startup School, and 95 YC alumni volunteered their time to advise over 2,800 of those companies participating across 141 countries.

Throughout the 10 weeks, we watched founders build products, talk to users, create local communities, and launch their companies. 1,587 (56%) of the companies completed the course, and, since then, 38 of them have been accepted to the core Y Combinator program and received YC funding.

Our goal is to help everyone, regardless of who or where they are, start their startup. The materials from this year’s Startup School, like those from previous years, will remain online after the course finishes as a permanent resource for all startup founders.

Staying on the path to high performing teams.
I love this framework for framing a team’s current status and how to address the issues. I especially like the diagram at the top. I think the author nails it.

File under: Innovation requires waste. Or, in this instance, “slack”, which really means free time to work on interesting stuff.

When you talk about growing an organization, the conversation usually leads to hiring. While I believe hiring is a very important approach to growing organizations, I believe we reach for it too often. In order to prioritize hiring for scenarios where it'll do the most good, over the past year I've developed a loose framework for reasoning about what a given team needs to increase performance.

Teams want to climb from falling behind to innovation, while entropy drags you backwards. Each state transition requires a different tact.

On how to maintain teams in the “innovating” state.

Innovating is a bit different, because you've nominally reached the end of the continuum, but there is still a system fix! In this case, it's to maintain enough slack in your team's schedule that the team can build quality into their work, and operating continuously in innovation, and avoid backtracking.

The Cadwalader Cabinet, A Machine Learning Research Platform | Artificial Lawyer
to hear about the firm’s custom-built legal research and knowledge management platform that leverages machine learning, known as the Cabinet.

The Cadwalader Cabinet provides analysis of US financial regulation and the firm has also just announced the release of a new version of its subscription service. It’s a great example of a law firm – and a pioneering partner – taking legal innovation into their own hands and creating something of value for the firm’s lawyers and the clients. Artificial Lawyer asked Lofchie if he could please tell us some more.

Q&A: Baker McKenzie's Newly Hired 'Godfather' of Legal Operations | The American Lawyer
What do you expect the landscape for global firms to look like 10 years in the future?

Their expertise, their capabilities are going to be what drives people to a firm like Baker to solve very complicated problems.

The lawyers will really focus, at a global law firm, as legal integrators. [The concept was pioneered by consultant Bill Mooz and Indiana University Law professor Bill Henderson.]

Legal integrators design systems and solutions. They pull together bespoke lawyers at the firm They help and run manage systems, and by systems, I don’t just mean technology systems but really models that help deliver legal services. And they also pull into the mix legal specialists and subject matter expertise based on specific tasks, or allied professionals around data and processing and software technology. I think a global firm that manages those pieces and helps pull those all together is what the global firm of the future is going to look like.

Updated: Facebook confirms it is to buy Allen & Overy Fuse startup Bloomsbury AI | Legal IT Insider
Facebook is buying Bloomsbury AI – one of the early stage companies currently resident in Allen & Overy’s incubator Fuse – according to a report from TechCrunch that has subsequently been confirmed by Facebook to Legal IT Insider.

Bloomsbury AI uses natural language processing to create virtual assistants that can be taught to read, reason and communicate (AI that Bloomsbury calls ‘Cape’), which Facebook is reportedly going to use as a part of its arsenal to tackle the growing problem of fake news. Cape allows developers to add question & answer functionality to websites and other documents.

Facebook’s press team contacted Legal IT Insider on 3 July to say: “The team behind Bloomsbury AI has agreed to join Facebook in London” and directed us to the following statement on Facebook Academics:
