New software startups are born everyday around the world. Nonetheless, failure is the fate of most of them. The community already knows that several facts, such as market competition or lack of resources, can impact the destiny of a startup. However, little has been explored in term of the impact of software startup education on the success of failure of startups. In this sense, this study presents the initial steps that we are taking to understand how software startups are taught around the world. To do so, we design a qualitative survey aimed at software startup educators at Universities. Our goal is to gather enough information so we can help the academic community in improving their own courses. So far, we have gathered 10 responses from lecturers across the globe. This paper describes these findings.
