About the Class

Faculty

GSD is an intensive, project-based course and is the most advanced for-credit class in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation track. It is designed for any startup team across campus who is already working on building a new, high-impact venture. Teams will learn to apply advanced entrepreneurial techniques to build and iterate their venture over the course of the semester in a time-compressed manner, in a respectful community of peers and with intensive 1 on 1 coaching. You’re a good match for Track #2 if your team: - have been working on this venture together for at least one semester; - have taken “New Enterprises” 15.390; - have run tactical experiments, and have implemented metrics based on these experiments. Teams in Track #2 are looking for accountability, a small cohort setting, and motivation to push your venture forward at a rapid pace while dealing with the typical noise and distractions of a semester. Track #2 consists of weekly lessons, class discussions, homework, and 1:1 mentorship. - All teams interested in being part of Track #2 will pitch their ventures on Monday, September 13th. - Only 6 teams will be accepted following these pitches. - At least two team members from your venture must be available to participate in the class. - No solo founders may take part in Track #2.
