Wilson Sonsini Entrepreneurs College

Silicon Valley's most famous law firm, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, is hosting a free 14 week series of seminars for entrepreneurs to learn about raising capital and running an early-stage startup. One unique & cool thing about what WSGR is doing, is that they are using many of their branch offices (Austin, New York, Washington D.C., San Diego, San Francisco, & Seattle) to syndicate the content, which is great for folks that don't live in Silicon Valley. The first event is on Valuation and takes place on October 2nd and you can register here.
