  5. Beyond Silicon Valley: Growing Entrepreneurship in Transitioning Economies

    The path for entrepreneurs to grow their companies outside of well-developed entrepreneurial ecosystems like Silicon Valley is challenging. Most markets around the world do not look like Silicon Valley, and they never will. But there are other models to support new businesses. In transitioning markets (where entrepreneurs do not have much access to private sector financing), government officials, donors, and business leaders are experimenting with creative approaches to support the growth of entrepreneurs. Northeast Ohio, whose largest city is Cleveland, is one such community. During our time together in this course, we will be exploring some of these innovative approaches.

  7. Grow to Greatness: Smart Growth for Private Businesses, Part II

    This course focuses on the common human resource ("people") challenges faced by existing private businesses when they attempt to grow substantially. PART 1 OF THE GROW TO GREATNESS COURSE IS NOT A PREREQUISITE FOR TAKING THIS COURSE.


  8. How to Build a Startup

    In an introduction to the basics of the famous Customer Development Process, Steve Blank provides insight into the key steps needed to build a successful startup.

    The main idea in this course is learning how to rapidly develop and test ideas by gathering massive amounts of customer and marketplace feedback. Many startups fail by not validating their ideas early on with real-life customers. In order to mitigate that, students will learn how to get out of the building and search for the real pain points and unmet needs of customers. Only with these can the entrepreneur find a proper solution and establish a suitable business model.

    Building a startup is not simply building an execution plan for a business model that the entrepreneur thinks will work, but rather, a search for the actual business model itself.

  9. Grow to Greatness: Smart Growth for Private Businesses, Part I

    There you are: you have a venture idea, which seems reasonably good. Or not, and then, you may want to follow my first MOOC, Decode the entrepreneur's DNA, which will help you to find an idea.

    Well, if you have this idea, then the next step is to transform that promising opportunity into a real life venture! This is where the real challenge starts for the entrepreneur, and this is where the subtle chemistry of entrepreneurial success mostly lies.
