About the Course

Students will learn the fundamentals of Technology Entrepreneurship through this online course introduced by Stanford University.

Technology Entrepreneurship was pioneered in Silicon Valley and it is now been spreading all over the world.  This course will teach about the process that technology entrepreneurs use to start new companies.

Starting a new company 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.

Students will get a practical knowledge also when they form team and work on startup projects in those teams.

Through this online course students will be able 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.
