Interested in learning about how to take new technologies, like Blockchain, CRISPR, and Machine Learning, to market? This course will help you explore all these technologies (and more) and also assist you in learning how the entrepreneurship ecosystem of Silicon Valley works. We’ll have guest speakers who are leaders at startups to established companies, discussions on news articles, and many fun activities to understand how to take an idea to an IPO.
Usually, every two-hour class will follow the format of a guest lecture for the first hour and a discussion, workshop, or group work for the last hour. In order to pass, students must receive at least a 70% and have no more than 2 unexcused absences. Attendance, participation, and the final project are all core components of the course.
