Is there a cost to join Marketplace School?
Marketplace School is available to all Everything Marketplaces members. This is an initiative by Everything Marketplaces and we believe that marketplaces are some of the most complex, challenging, but rewarding types of startups, so it should be easier to start one. We want to inspire, educate, and bring together the most ambitious marketplace founders, so we're making Marketplace School part of our membership.
Who is Marketplace School for?
Marketplace School is for aspiring and current marketplace founders. We've broken down the course & curriculum into stages so that you can easily find the best place to start. If you're ambitious, motivated, and looking to start a marketplace startup, Marketplace School is for you.
If I haven't started a marketplace yet should I join?
Yes! We welcome everyone and that includes aspiring marketplace founders that might not even have their big idea yet. The curriculum is designed to help you think through your idea, help you understand marketplaces as businesses, and we even provide resources such as a framework you can overlay on your idea in the earliest stages to better evaluate it.
What can I expect from being part of Marketplace School?

You'll gain access to a course that's broken down into modules where you can go from idea to launched marketplace in 2-3 weeks.

You'll be able to post an introduction, talk through each module, get help from others, potentially meet Co-founders, and more.
