How to design and develop an experiential entrepreneurial education program to teach people building startups?
Today I get the answer from Steve Blank’s new project: Startup Weekend Next!
Steve Blank is a Silicon Valley-based retired serial entrepreneur. He spent several years to develop a new startup methodology called Customer Development. He wrote a book, taught classes in universities, and up graded his idea to the second book The Startup Owner’s Manual. Then, he published his traditional class lecture videos, quizzes and homework assignments on Udacity, a popular MOOC platform. But the MOOC platform is not enough to teach entrepreneurship, so he decided to launched a new offline/online hybrid learning model – Startup Weekend Next.
The goal – to inspire, educate and empower hundred’s of thousands of entrepreneurs and help create 10,000 startups.
