This is the monthly thread to find a study partner.

For reasons mentioned in So8res article as well as for other reasons: studying with a partner can be very good.

So if you're looking for a study partner for an online course, reading a manual or else (whether it's in the MIRI course list or not) tell others in the comment section.

The past treads about finding a study partner can be found under the tag study_thread. However, you have higher probabilities of finding a study partner in the most recent thread. If you haven't found a study partner last month, you are welcome to post the same comment again here.

I'm going to be doing a lot of work with lean start up, customer development, and validated learning. Anyone interested in doing/learning that with me I would be happy to talk to.

Could you elaborate on what sorts of work you will be doing? I'm interested.

My goal is to get an investment in a company I start.

Right now I have three ideas, and I'll be going through The Startup Owners Manual and Running Lean, using Bayesian updating along with standard lean start up practices to determine which company is the best, and then slowly working through the exercises until I get to a point where I'm ready for outside investors.

Anyways, would definitely love a partner in crime, even if you're not quite looking to put in the same level of investment. Let me know if you're interested.

I am interested in start ups and possibly want to do one, but not for several years, so while I likely don't have your level of investment, I'm interested. Let me know how you want to coordinate
