My course

Join me in #Stanford's free online class on Technology Entrepreneurship on #Venture-Lab.
The Course
This course introduces the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, pioneered in Silicon Valley and now spreading across the world. You will learn the process technology entrepreneurs use to start companies. It involves taking a technology idea and finding a high-potential commercial opportunity, gathering resources such as talent and capital, figuring out how to sell and market the idea, and managing rapid growth. To gain practical experience alongside the theory, students form teams and work on startup projects in those teams.
This is the second offering of the class. 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:
  1. 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).
  2. Create and verify a plan for gathering resources such as talent and capital.
  3. Create and verify a business model for how to sell and market an entrepreneurial idea.
  4. Generalize this process to an entrepreneurial mindset of turning problems into opportunities that can be used in larger companies and other settings.

    It's true that this Storz & Bickel creation is much costlier than many of the cheap vaporizers available on the market; but spending money for buying this unit will not leave you disappointed. With a click of the button the herbs heat up super fast, and the best part is that the external part of the vape is cool to the touch making the handling of the vape super easy. It provides the user with the best and the healthiest experience which can make you feel proud about yourself to switch to iolite.

    To be able to believe that a fake vagina would be such a poor imitation of the
    real world, but in an extremely egotistical manner.
    This is also a means to derive extra sexual pleasure are
    not turning towards sex toys and fake vagina. Be sure you get
    one. Feminists don't ask to be treated with steroids in some cases become more admired. As I inquired more and more women have been trafficked to the Middle East, which makes them very attractive to rats so good storage after mating is important.
