Entrepreneurship in Technology
|Title||Entrepreneurship in Technology (51250)|
|Syllabus||NOTE: This syllabus is tentative and subject to change. This class will be taught by Ben Johnson.
The core theme for the Entrepreneurship in Technology course is that computer science students need exposure to the broad challenges of capturing opportunities and creating companies. Most of the skills required for this process have nothing to do with one’s technical capacity. We’ll explore creating a story, pitching the idea, raising money, hiring, marketing, selling, and more. Real-world examples, case-studies, and lessons-learned will be blended with fundamental concepts and principles. The course will involve a business plan, case-studies, and supplemental reading to provide students with significant insights into the resolve required to take an idea to market. Class discussion will also be a key part of the student experience.
