Brian Armstrong, co-founder and CEO of Coinbase; Brian Brooks, the cryptocurrency exchange’s chief legal officer; and its ex-chief technology officer Balaji Srinivasan, will all teach at the school, among several others.

“They will share lessons they’ve learned, early best practices, new project ideas, and important considerations to help aspiring entrepreneurs and builders get started,” said Jesse Walden, program manager at a16z Crypto Startup School, in a blog post published Wednesday.

The school program starts on Feb. 21, 2020 and ends Apr. 3, 2020. Other teachers include executives from a16z itself, cryptocurrency payments startup Celo, decentralized finance (DeFi) lending protocol Compound and ethereum-focused startup Parity Technologies.

A16z Crypto Startup School was first announced in October.

The program would cover topics such as crypto business models, crypto-economics, fundraising strategies, blockchain computing, and others.
