Start Smart is a hands-on class for entrepreneurs who are serious about launching a startup. CEO's, successful entrepreneurs and investors who’ve done it all before are invited guest speakers and an integral component of the learning experience! Many people who take the class are at the very early stage concept level - the class will help you develop your idea.
Classes are focused on the steps required to prep a solid understanding of your target market so you can launch and grow your science/technology company successfully.
Each student receives a copy of Guy Kawasaki’s ‘The Art of the Start’ and Bill Aulet’s ‘Disciplined Entrepreneurship.’ These books are key to the curriculum and are included as part of the registration fee.
