Stanford University

Technology Entrepreneurship Part 2

Stanford University via NovoEd

This course may be unavailable.


This is the second half of a course that introduces the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, pioneered in Silicon Valley and now spreading across the world. Last time, nearly 40,000 students from around the world participated and worked in teams together. The top teams were matched with Silicon Valley mentors, and the best teams at the end of the class pitched their ideas to investors. Many of the alumni of the last class are continuing to build their startups and will be mentoring teams this time. By the conclusion of the course, it is our hope that you understand how to: - Articulate a process for taking a technology idea and finding a high-potential commercial opportunity (high performing students will be able to discuss the pros and cons of alternative theoretical models). - Create and verify a plan for gathering resources such as talent and capital. - Create and verify a business model for how to sell and market an entrepreneurial idea. - Generalize this process to an entrepreneurial mindset of turning problems into opportunities that can be used in larger companies and other settings.

    The professor is just mailing it in. He has admitted he is very busy trying to get tenure (doing research, tending to his doctoral students). The community and teams are dead. Don't waste your time on this class

    A great course that allows you to meet like minded people and to work on technology projects that help you to learn the process of starting up a company and ensuring that you have considered all the essential research and validations that are required to help ensure a successful start up.

    I really enjoyed the class one thing I was thinking that could be helpful is possibly having a a PDF download with phrases .Examples sometimes acronyms are used and some people may have minimal knowledge in that field/vocabulary.
    I enjoyed it! Good Job everyone!
  • It was very helpful to get insights from many successful business people. It would be helpful to understand how this course would be differ if it was for a differ business development and not a specialized tech start up.
