There’s no better place to explore building a startup than during your time as a student at UC Berkeley. Surrounded by ambitious and talented people and industry-leading professors, there’s endless potential to create the next big thing. Build The Future (UGBA 198) is a course designed to teach and inspire students through an intimate, collaboration-driven environment to build their own startups. We will go over the basic building blocks of a startup and connect this knowledge to emerging fields.
About the Course: The course has two parts. The first features an entrepreneur sharing their experiences and knowledge in a particular area of building a startup through a lecture-style, moderated, or Q&A-driven talk. The second entails reflecting on industry speakers’ talks to internalize new information with peers through interactive discussions and case studies. We also feature resources and relay updated information about events on campus to help students kickstart their ventures.
The course meets one time per week followed by a supplementary smaller discussion section on a different day. The class is speaker-driven with sessions featuring entrepreneurs who share their experiences and knowledge in a particular area of building a startup. It will also feature guest professors and introduce you to resources on campus to help you build your venture.
