SiriusXM listeners are about to get some business advice from the country’s leading entrepreneurs and more successful investors.
Startup School Radio is a program designed to bring together the top minds in business and entrepreneurship in a weekly forum.
The show will air weekly on Wednesdays beginning on March 11 at 10 a.m. PST live from San Francisco. Y Combinator partner Aaron Harris will serve as host.
Startup School Radio can be heard on Business Radio Powered by the Wharton School, channel 111, on SiriusXM. It will also be available at SiriusXM On Demand.
Each week, the show will gather the founders of early-stage tech startups and investors of successful startups in the past. They’ll try to offer insight to would-be and current entrepreneurs and small business owners.
Harris is co-founder of Tutorspree, a startup funded by Y Combinator back in 2011. He says that startup founders, entrepreneurs, and small business owners can learn more from each other than from anyone else.
In a statement introducing the show, Harris says:
“Starting a startup is really hard. The best way to learn about it is by talking to the founders who have done it before and succeeded despite a lot of screw ups. I want to help everyone thinking about starting a company to learn how to do it better. The conversations we’re going to have on SiriusXM’s ‘Startup School Radio’ are going to do that for a huge audience.”
SiriusXM President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein also expressed his excitement for the upcoming show, adding:
“In a world where many ambitious, creative, and smart people either want to form a startup or work for one, ‘Startup School Radio’ gives our listeners a fantastic opportunity to learn about the next big thing, before it’s a ‘next big thing,’ from one of the most lauded startup accelerator programs in Silicon Valley. Aaron Harris and guests including partners from Y Combinator will give our listeners a rare, inside look at this fascinating world and the work they’re doing to drive innovation.”
Entrepreneurs and those with ideas of starting their own business may want to tune in to hear some sage advice from those who’ve been there already.
But if you’re a small business owner in need of inspiration this may also be a great show for you.

Such a nice way to teach people using audio. I know some people don’t learn that well with words. Some learn more through pictures or audio. So I guess having a school in different forms of media is a good thing.
