EC.074 The Start-up Experience at MIT
Explores some of the critical actions in starting up a technology-based business, including concept generation, searching prior art and patents, protecting intellectual property, founders agreements, forming and building teams, and work-life balance. Students review case studies and complete exercises that develop practicable knowledge in these areas. Each student keeps an "idea log book," which includes critical assessments of each case study, to be presented at the end of the term. First in a two-part series (seminars do not have to be taken sequentially; see EC.075 in spring term). Preference to undergraduates; open to graduate students with permission of advisor.
This class has no prerequisites.
EC.074 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by J. Hadzima.
Lecture occurs 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Tuesdays in 4-402.
This class counts for a total of 6 credits.
