Nuts & Bolts of Entrepreneurship
This series of speakers, workshops and practical sessions features entrepreneurs, investors and leading Silicon Valley service providers. The series, open to all Stanford students and alumni, is meant to complement the formal entrepreneurship curriculum by offering practical guidance on the "nuts & bolts" of starting a company. The CES welcomes your suggestions for additional topics. If you have questions or are stuck on some of the first steps in starting a new venture, your classmates will likely want to learn about the same topics!
