If you have an idea and think you can make some money off it, it's time to start a business! In this course, we're going to look at what it means to take an idea and make a business model out of it. Once we have a business model, we're going to spread the word, try to sell our product and get real customers!
Many products are developed based on a hunch, a judgement call, and incomplete information. Needless to say, most of them fail miserably. Startup founders and business owners then ask themselves why. This course takes a different, risk-mitigating, more scientific approach to the art of starting a business. You’ll learn how to develop a product people really need by uncovering these needs well in advance. Before you write one line of code, before you hire a large team, before you take a big risk. You’ll learn the ins and outs of learning if people need your product by implementing three activities to learn from your future customers - Experience Sampling, Field Observation, and Interviewing. After making sense of it all, you’ll be able to kick-start your business with confidence in your knowledge and wisdom.
Learn techniques for delivering effective presentations so you can help guide decisions, influence change, and make an impact on the business.
