Starting Up by Aalto Free Online Course

All university students need entrepreneurial skills. That doesn’t mean we want every student to become an entrepreneur, because we don’t. The skills and mindsets of successful entrepreneurs, however, are beneficial to everyone. In a world that’s changing faster than ever, it’s more important than ever to understand users’ needs, to be adaptive and creative, to solve problems instead of finding scapegoats and to be able to communicate your vision to others. That’s what entrepreneurs have always done, and it’s time everyone else started doing it too. Starting Up is a free, open access online course covering the fundamentals of startup entrepreneurship. This introductory level course provides basic tools for anyone who wants to build a startup around a problem they’d like to solve, introduce a new product or service in their company, or understand and be able to better discuss new ventures. Starting Up was initiated by university students who felt that it was difficult to find a comprehensive, well-curated and up-to-date starter pack on startup entrepreneurship — despite the fact that entrepreneurial skills can benefit a broad range of people in modern working life. They were worried that the best practices would soon become synonymous with best-kept secrets, so they decided to create a course of their own. Students joined forces with professors, investors and European entrepreneurs to share concrete tools for starting up with the world. Their aim was to make sure that no great idea would go unpersuaded due to a lack of access to basic knowledge.
