  3. 3. What is probably not going to happen? • You are probably not going to actually start a company… • You probably should not. See Paul Graham’s article in the assigned readings • …but, understanding how you would and experiencing what it feels like will help you “live in the future, see what is missing and build it.” 3
  4. 4. So…what do we hope to accomplish here? • Learn how to start a startup • Learn how to learn how to start a startup • This stuff is always evolving – learning how to learn (and how to share) is critical • Learn how to create value in the world • What to build? • How to build it? • How to get it in the hands of those who can benefit from it? • How to do all of this as painlessly and as quickly as possible? • How to have an impact on the world in a meaningful and sustainable way? 4
  5. 5. How are we going to go about this? • Bill Aulet’s Disciplined Entrepreneurship • Cram as much into 10 classes as possible • Learn by doing, suspend your disbelief (just enough) to make it a valuable experience • Learn by sharing with other teams and the NCSSM community (alums, friends, mentors,…) 5
  6. 6. How specifically will we go about this? • Start with the 4 currently proposed ideas • Need 2 people from each proposal to pitch that idea to the rest of the class • The remaining 12 students form pairs (6 pairs) • Brainstorm a new idea • Pitch your idea to the rest of the class 6
