I feel honoured to state that I have crossed 12,000 students combined in all courses I offered in UDEMY and have been able to keep the rating beyond 4.0. For majority of the aspiring entrepreneurs, understanding the Silicon Valley and its entrepreneurial ecosystem has not yet been covered in existing courses. I take an angle to illustrate the 'how' part of entrepreneurship through my own experience and experience from others like highly revered professor Steve Blank, or Eric Rise to name a few.
Some of you gave really positive feedback as following:
"I love this course"
"Well, this course was about one of those engaging topics of the modern era in the world of technology. The contents were amazingly presented and the instructor provided the detailed view on the strategy part regarding Nokia mainly and others too. Being a professional not in technology field though, this course certainly provided insights into strategy and I would really like to apply those techniques into my job and expect to come up with desired results. Hence, i highly recommend this course to my friends, colleagues and those personnels be it the job seekers or entrepreneurs".
While we base majority of the discussions around key author's contribution to entrepreneurial practice, we do not forget the traditional gurus like Geoffrey Moore through his 'crossing the chasm' concept.
First, I introduce Customer Development Model practiced by many entrepreneurs in the Valley and around the world as suggested by Steve Bank. Then I trace the development of this model further in Lean Startup concept of Eric Ries and how it can be applied in practice.
Second, I break these models into business model creation vs execution parts and illustrate it with concrete examples. Here we borrow from Alex Osterwalder to use his Business Model Canvas.
Third, I request you to actually do the exercise of creating your own idea through business model canvas. We depart completely from business plan concept.
Fourth, I conclude the course with my own experience from Nokia and Finnish startup ecosystem which is not becoming an entrepreneurial hot bed.
I wait you inside! Please join the course now!
