There’s no better place to explore building a startup than during your time as a student at UC Berkeley. Surrounded by ambitious & talented people and industry-leading professors, there’s endless potential to create the next big thing. This course is designed to teach and inspire students to use their knowledge to build startups. We will be going over the basic building blocks of a successful startup and connect this knowledge to emerging fields. In addition, we will be providing an overview of the startup scene at Berkeley, pointing out resources ready to help students get a head start.
The course meets twice a week. The first class of the week will feature an entrepreneur to share his experiences and knowledge in a particular area of building a startup. The second class of the week will either feature another entrepreneur or provide time for students to work on the semester long project.
Previous speakers include Steve Wozniak (Founder, Apple), Patrick Collison (CEO, Stripe), and Michael Seibel (CEO, Y Combinator)
Attendance is mandatory and will be taken every class period. In the case of an absence, please notify us ahead of time; you can also keep up with the speaker series online as we’ll likely record them. Students with more than a total of 4 absences will be failed.
