The 1Mby1M Methodology is based on case studies. In this course, Sramana Mitra shares the tribal knowledge of tech entrepreneurs by giving students the rare seat at the table with the entrepreneurs, investors and thought leaders who provide the most instructive perspectives on how to build a thriving business. Through these conversations, students gain access to case studies exploring the alleys of entrepreneurship. Sramana’s synthesis of key learnings and incisive analysis add great depth to each discussion.
In the spirit of feminine feminism, this course shares the journeys of dozens of inspiring women entrepreneurs. It simulates mentoring sessions with twenty successful women entrepreneurs.
As you will see through the perspectives of so many dynamic, highly successful women, entrepreneurship is not easy at all. Running a company, raising children, nurturing a successful relationship, typically constitute a chaotic cocktail. Nonetheless, all these women entrepreneurs enjoy what they do, and would encourage more women to plunge into entrepreneurship.
Of course, there are trade-offs, and all of us have made those trade-offs.
None of this is easy. Entrepreneurship is extremely challenging. But if you have the stomach for it, being an entrepreneur, building something from nothing, realizing your vision and see it blossom into something real, tangible, impactful, important – is immensely fulfilling.
I would never trade that core sense of purpose for anything in the world! At the same time, I would also never trade-off my femininity. I am not a believer in masculine feminism, where you need to behave like the ‘guys’. Real power comes from that core sense-of-self – your deep self-esteem, your faith in your own work ethic, your talent, your vision, your conviction, your ability to influence people through the inherent positivity of your persona.
I hope this course will give you the courage to be yourself. Pursue your dreams.
