Learn How to Build a Startup

If you enjoyed the Introduction to Statistics class from Udacity and if you're thinking of founding your own business, you might want to check out this next course about building a startup. The class will be facilitated by noted educator and entrepreneur Steve Blank. In the course, you will learn "the key steps of the Customer Development process: how to identify and engage the first customers for your product, and how to gather, evaluate and use their feedback to make your product, marketing and business model far stronger." Based on the syllabus, the course will cover key aspects of operations management (product design and development, supply chain management), marketing (market segmentation, marketing strategy), and business strategy. The best part is that you don't have to have any prior knowledge about these topics, although "passion, tenacity, and a willingness to work hard are essential."

The course starts on September 14. See you in class!
