Broaden your perspective

Learn new concepts

Startup Class 2018 is an intensive hands-on, project-based course in which you will design and test new business concepts that address real-world needs.

During Startup Class you will go from concept to company over the course of 4 weeks. Our goal is to help your team identify unmet customer needs, create new products or services that meet those needs, and develop business models.

Think entrepreneurial

This course is appropriate for developing your startup in the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. Even if your team does not successfully launch a venture you will learn critical techniques about starting and launching a startup.

By the end of the course, your team will have developed, prototyped, and tested a novel product or service. This is a demanding course that pushes you but helps to navigate the challenges of developing an early-stage startup.
