In 2014, Altman was named president of Y Combinator, which funded the startup he co-founded in the first batch of funded companies in 2005. In a 2014 blog post, Altman stated that the total valuation of all Y Combinator companies had surpassed $65 billion. In September 2016 Altman announced that he will be president of YC Group, which includes Y Combinator and other units. Altman has said that he hopes to expand Y Combinator so that it eventually funds 1,000 new companies per year. Also in October 2015, Altman announced Y Combinator Research, a non-profit research lab, and donated $10 million to the group. Altman was named the top investor under 30 by Forbes in 2015. He was the CEO of Reddit for 8 days in 2014 after the then-CEO, Yishan Wong, resigned. Altman and Elon Musk are the co-chairmen of OpenAI.

    Kiwi, many things as an undergrad. are learned through textbooks. Some of the most beneficial reasons to go to school are 1) You have a degree that says you are ‚credible‘ in a certain area 2) For meeting other people who may also have some of the same interests as you and possibly partners for companies! and 3) Making connections with mentors. All of which you can do through other venues! For 1) Create a great product that people love!

    „being young, unknown and poor is actually a great gift“. I was told the same thing when I doubted my ability because of my youth (inexperience, resources, etc), however it was worded „Max, you are young, don’t have a family to take care of, don’t have large bills and payments, and you are willing to work day and night – that makes you incredibly dangerous“. It means I can undercut people’s margins, I can usually delivery a better product as far as grass-roots jobs go. I think one of the most important take-aways here is to know how incredible advantaged young, broke hard working people are.

    Wouldn’t be the best time to quit the time that you see that you are characterized less than 50% of the 10 rules !!. How can you believe on such company ! would you afford firing all the exiting Managers and resigned right after hiring a New team (when you feel like that the team is the issue ) !

    4. Impact the world. this is one of my values too, I truly believe that we are all placed here to preserve life, to help eachother. I think that if you can impact the world in a positive way, you are helping mankind. #believenation #BTA215

    Is it just me – or does everyone seem to have gone to a great university who went on to do great in the world? Why can’t I leave school and get the same result (only person is Richard Branson that didn’t go to university or a levels who did this?)

    Knowing when to fire is perhaps more important that knowing who to hire. One code cowboy could bring down the whole enterprise. Just ask Amazon.

    Great Video. I will watch this one 20 times. Sam Altman has experience with more than 1,000 startups. It is really difficult to do a startup. I have been involved with 5. I am doing my 6th. Thanks Evan! #SecretsSelfmadeBillionaires
