Announcing Ubiquity University: Unlocking growth for startup leaders
Our brand new collection of short educational videos for early-stage entrepreneurs can amplify your impact and increase your success rate.
Today we’re launching Ubiquity University to share the latest knowledge and advice for pre-seed, seed, and Series A stage entrepreneurs. Our collection of short 5-15 minute videos goes into key concepts, mindset shifts, and tactical advice to help startup leaders grow and develop. Our speakers include the sharpest technical and business experts from the Ubiquity Extended Team and beyond.
As you raise your first capital, run your first board meeting, recruit/compensate your teammates, and close your first customers, we hope Ubiquity University can amplify your impact and increase your success rate!
Our “Day One” Series
For startup leaders who just raised their first round of venture capital, we have Ubiquity University’s “Day One” series. Topics include nailing your mindset before your first board meeting, building your first financial model, managing extremely early customer development and sales, and more.
Our “AI Crash Course” Series
At Ubiquity, we believe in understanding how things work all the way down to the first principles — and that even non-technical people can and should do this. (This is why we sponsor many science/explainer Youtube channels.)
Artificial intelligence and machine learning is a critical part of the startup and broader world. To this end, Ubiquity Extended Team member Amol Kapoor explains how AI really works in this set of 5 short videos, starting with the basics of embeddings and features and moving on to how 4 very popular AI models work (CLIP, Stable Diffusion, NeRF, and GPT).
