Target Audience

This course is for students who have an interest in creating their own start-up, or work at one – and who want to know the reality of what to expect. Whether you’re looking to learn from experts who have built their companies from scratch, or figure out how to make your bold new idea a reality, this class is for you.

 
 

Overview

Often, the best way to learn is to hear the stories, lessons learned, and tips & tricks of those who have been there before you.  This class is about hearing these entrepreneurial accounts first-hand.

The course brings in a broad range of entrepreneurs (both successful and not successful) who founded and still operate their businesses.  We examine some of the toughest issues entrepreneurs can expect in start-ups.
