Syllabus

  • Week 1 - Think
    We start at the beginning with your big idea and where it comes from: your everyday experience and known sources of innovation as described by Peter Drucker.
  • Week 2 - Listen
    This second phase of the entrepreneurial lifecycle encourages you to take the big idea you’ve thought about and solicit feedback from the people whose problems you’re trying to solve.
  • Week 3 - Plan
    Strategy, the art and science of being different than your competition, is the next element we introduce, based on Michael Porter’s work.
  • Week 4 - Clarify
    In this module, we coach you on continuing to refine your big idea and beginning to communicate it clearly to a wider audience.
  • Week 5 - Support
    To make your big idea into a reality, you’ll need the personal, professional, and financial resources we discuss in this module.
  • Week 6 - Iterate
    This final step of the entrepreneurial lifecycle outlines a method to continue thinking, listening, planning, clarifying, and supporting your big idea.
  • Week 6 - Peer Assessment (Optional)
    Create a pitch for your Big Idea, then give and receive feedback.
  • Week 6 - Reverse Pitches (Optional)
    In these optional videos, experts from UNC Chapel Hill and Washington University in St. Louis offered their insider perspectives on a number of pressing problems that present unprecedented opportunities for meaningful innovation.
