Course

Creating a Tech Startup: A Silicon Valley Workshop


Every great idea has a beginning and no one can make it to the top alone. In this highly collaborative, two-session workshop for new entrepreneurs, you will refine your business ideas, develop your product, explore the market, learn to build a team, and explore fundraising strategies. Learn to think like an entrepreneur by identifying and evaluating the best opportunities for creating a tech business and building out principal strategies regarding human, technical, commercial, and financial factors. Refine your elevator pitch.

In the final class, you’ll get to practice your pitch, helping you to put your best foot forward.

While open to a broad audience, this course also prepares students to compete in HEROthon, a 3-day Draper University Hackathon (November 1–3) that aims to get the best ideas in front of VCs. No experience necessary.
