6.976 The Founder’s Journey July 29, 2010

Posted by Hosoi in Classes, Management Track, PD Track.

Do you want to start your own company? Want to learn from others who’ve started companies?  In this course you’ll get immersed in building a company from scratch.  Does your idea make sense?  Is this the right time to launch?  Who else should be on your team?  Are you cut out for this?  We explore these questions, with an emphasis on the first-time technical founder.  You’ll work in teams to transform a core idea into a startup business.  Even if you’re not ready for a startup, this class provides an exploration of leadership, innovation, and creativity as seen through the lens of a startup founder.  http://founders.mit.edu
