Art of the Startup teaches you how to go from no idea to launching your own startup using cutting-edge business strategies, advanced marketing principles, and proven growth-hacking tactics.
This is the only business course in the world taught by Justin Kan, the founder of Twitch.tv (the world’s largest gaming live streaming platform) which was acquired by Amazon for $970 million.
Art of the Startup includes 7 training modules with over 3 hours of instruction PLUS over 20 hours of bonus in-depth interviews with 39 hand-picked founders (and venture capitalists) behind some of the most disruptive, well-known, and profitable startups on the planet.
The course is filmed in a “cinematic” style that makes learning a breeze as if you’re watching a documentary on Netflix. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Meet Justin Kan: an American tech entrepreneur, investor and startup mentor who co-founded the live streaming platform Twitch, which transformed e-sports forever (and was acquired by Amazon for $970 million).
Justin is currently a celebrated guest speaker at events including TechCrunch Disrupt, Y Combinator Startup School, and HustleCon, to name a few.
Now, he’s teamed up with Jumpcut to release the world’s most revealing startup course ever.
After 2.5 years as a partner in Y Combinator and working with over 500 startups (including Jumpcut)...
Justin has met, mentored, and learned from dozens of ambitious entrepreneurs… the dreamers and doers who now engineer the world’s most successful startups.
And starting today, Justin wants to give YOU unprecedented access to the best of both worlds:
The strategies, tactics, and advanced startup principles he’s learned from over 12 years of real-world experience launching over half a dozen startups.
There are 39 guest experts featured in total in our over 20 hours of bonus interviews that you get when you join Art of the Startup today.
These experts are of the highest caliber and include:
Samuel Yam, co-founder of Patreon, valued at $450 million in 2017.
Walker William, co-founder of Teespring, which sold 6 million t-shirts in 2014.
David Rusenko, co-founder of Weebly, which has over 25 million users and is valued at $490 million.
Daniel Kan, co-founder of Cruise, which sold to GM for $1 billion.
...just to name a few.
Now you can “hang out” with 39 of the world’s most intelligent, innovative entrepreneurs and venture capitalists on the planet...and learn their most valuable mindsets, principles, and perspectives.
That’s unheard of.
Here’s a small sampling of the in-depth, advanced lessons you’ll learn inside Art of the Startup.
92% of billion dollar startups have this one thing in common-your success hinges on getting it right. (Here’s how...)
Why building a startup is more like a marathon than a sprint.
How to create 10x "painkiller" solutions, the kind your audience actually needs.
“Do you even code, bro?” How to “speak geek” and get a technical co-founder to buy into your startup vision. (Hint: It’s all about what YOU bring to the table.)
Divine Inspiration Fallacy: The #1 reason why 99% of startups fall flat on their face. (And why the startup “gods” will laugh at you… until you do THIS.)
The CEO just delivered a burrito? What Door Dash can teach you about building customer loyalty by “doing things that do NOT scale.”
The fastest way to separate your startup from the competition: it’s NOT advertising, it’s NOT features and it’s NOT about hiring more people (most first time startup founders get this wrong).
Leaky product syndrome: What it is, how to avoid it, and why getting repeat (not just new) users will be your #1 driver of future growth.
How Reddit, Dropbox and Twitch hacked their way to hundreds of millions of users...without blowing their budget on noisy ad campaigns or doing expensive “face lifts” on their websites.
How long you should give your startup to succeed. (And why most startups fail by quitting too soon. Look for this telltale sign.)
Plus, you’ll also get access to PDF summaries that guide you through the program and give you simple, but effective action steps to take.
We’re extremely excited to release Art of the Startup, and we know how much of an impact it can have on your life, so we want to make sure that you can join today with the least possible amount of risk.
That’s why we’re backing this program with our 365-day guarantee.
How does it work?
Join today and try out Art of the Startup for up to a full year.
If you’re not absolutely THRILLED with the course, and if you don’t think it’s the best startup training available on the planet, then send us an email for a prompt, full refund.
The only requirement we have is that you need to have actually gone through the course and made an attempt to learn and implement the information.
That doesn’t mean you need to launch your own startup but you need to actually go through the worksheet assignments at the very least (which can be completed in their entirety with just a pen and paper).
Why do we have this requirement?
Because here at Jumpcut we want to do everything in our power to help our students become successful. And that means we only want to incentivize you to join our courses if you’re actually intending to take action and get results.
The truth is, the amount of effort you put in is going to largely decide the outcome you get with Art of the Startup. And we want to give you the best possible helping hand if you’re willing to accept that and still chase down your ambitious goals in life.
Sound fair? Cool.
It takes less than 60 seconds.
You might be thinking in order to have a profitable startup, you need to come up with a killer idea first - something no one else has ever thought of.
That is a very common misconception, but that’s not how it plays out in the real world.
In Art of the Startup, instead of focusing on “startup ideas,” Justin will teach you how to hunt for problems to solve.
You’ll learn what makes great startup ideas using a proven “painkiller vs. vitamin” framework, and that will enable you to find your big idea.
In fact, the most successful startup founders came up with ideas that solve problems and hassles they had in their own lives.
This exact method has helped some of the most exciting startups in the world—like Spotify, Weebly, Twitter and Twitch—come up with “billion dollar breakthroughs” millions of users love and tell all their friends about.
If it worked for them, it will work for you.
This is actually a key lesson in the course. We teach you what to do if you are (or are not) a “technical founder” meaning you have programming skills.
And we even cover the correct way to approach getting a technical co-founder to join you. (You’d be surprised, there are a lot more wrong ways to approach this than ones that will lead to a successful startup.)
So don’t worry if you don’t know the first thing about coding. (And also remember, there are many, many more successful ideas out there for you to build a business around than just tech startups, which are based around software/apps.)
Let me say this in all caps: IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.
Users don’t really care where you’re from. All they care about is whether you can solve their problems.
Don’t believe me? You might be surprised where many of the world’s biggest startups call home:
Canada (Shopify), Sweden (Spotify), Australia (99 Designs), Spain (Typeform)... there are too many to count.
Now, if you have a driverless car technology app and want to work side-by-side with Apple or Google, I’d say living in Palo Alto could make a difference.
Otherwise, great solutions know no borders—your best users may live in another country—and you can launch your startup from anywhere in the world.
Listen. Almost no one realizes this... but we’re in the “golden age” of startups.
There has never been a time in history where almost anyone (with almost any background) has the ability to launch their own startup.
Can everyone become the next Facebook? No. Of course not.
But could other people have tried and succeeded (at the time)? Absolutely.
As long as there are people with burning problems, there will always be a need for startups to solve them. And as you can probably imagine, there will always be more problems to solve in the world.
So get started today.
It can be extremely demotivating to hear about all the startups getting millions of venture capital thrown at them.
But the truth is, there are many, many more startups that don’t look like that.
Lots of people think that the key to startup success is attracting deep pocketed investors who will give them tons of money to "burn" on things like marketing, renting a big office, and hiring a team.
This is absolutely not the case.
The first and ONLY thing you need to do to gain momentum is find a great problem to solve. And that involves talking to users and asking them some very specific questions.
In the course, you’ll also get a crash course on how to approach funding, and whether you should aim for VC funding...or just bootstrap it the entire way.
When you learn the right way to approach a startup and build things people want... everything starts to "fall into place."
Then, down the road, when your business is successful, you can worry about attracting investors who can help your startup grow at a faster pace. If that’s what you’re looking for.
Yes. We’ve made it a main priority to guarantee your privacy, and your information’s safety. Our website is secure, and your payment information never even touches our server. (It goes through Braintree, a trusted 3rd party payment gateway owned by PayPal.)
After you sign up, you’ll get instant access to the entire Art of the Startup program, including all of the bonus content.
